5 Great Gift Ideas for Jewelry Makers

As the days begin to grow shorter and the weather begins to cool off, you might be starting to think about the holiday season. After all, it’s never too early to get a head start on your shopping, so you can avoid that last-minute holiday rush. Or maybe you’re just looking for gift ideas for someone special in your life, whether it be a mother, grandmother, friend, partner, aunt, or cousin.

 

Whatever the reason or season, if you’re looking for gifts for jewelry makers and people who love getting crafty, you’ve come to the right place! At Zaza of Canada, we offer a wide variety of buttons and brooches that are perfect for creating beautiful jewelry, and we’re happy to send our special treasures all around the world.  

 

Our list of gift ideas for jewelry makers includes buttons, tools, and other great items that jewelry makers need for crafting their dazzling jewelry designs.

 

Czech Glass Buttons

These unique vintage buttons come straight from the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of expert button-making. The intricate and ornate designs make these the perfect choice for a jewelry maker who’s interested in crafting vintage-style bracelets or embellishing a hat. They also look beautiful as the centerpiece of a bohemian necklace. Czech glass buttons are a great gift choice for jewelry makers, because they’re not commonly found in your average craft store. They offer so many opportunities for creativity and experimentation – the jewelry maker in your life will be sure to thank you!

Jewelry-Making Pliers

Of course, you can have the most beautiful buttons and brooches in the world, but if you don’t have the right tools, you won’t be able to create any jewelry! That’s why we’ve added jewelry-making pliers to our list. There are so many different kinds to choose from – snipe nose, round nose, flat nose, nylon jaw, side cutters, micro crimping pliers, and more! Or, you can really shine by giving the gift of a full plier set. Sure, this option might not be as stunning as the buttons on the list, but they’re an essential part of any jewelry maker’s workstation.

Rhinestone Buttons

Small rhinestone buttons are a fun and versatile option for jewelry making, and because they’re made from acrylic, they’re very lightweight. They also can be sewn on to a suit, or used as embellishments for napkin holders.

On the other hand, larger rhinestone brooches are a dazzling option for jewelry makers who love creating statement pieces, such as embellished headbands and hairpieces.

 

Rhinestone buttons can also be a fun addition to button bouquets for weddings and events.

 

Beads

While you won’t find beads in our shop, we had to add them to our list of gifts for jewelry makers. This is because a set of unique, vintage, or quirky beads would be a great addition when giving the gift of a Czech glass button or rhinestone button. At Zaza of Canada, we sell buttons in many different styles and every color of the rainbow, making it easy for you to find the best beads in complementary shapes and colors. Jewelry makers will love having a collection of beads to accent the buttons in their designs!

 

Bead and Button Storage

 

Maybe your friend is a very prolific jewelry maker, and they have a bevy of buttons and beads practically overflowing in their craft room. If this is the case, then getting them the gift of storage tools and organizers is a great choice! You can choose from drawers and cabinets, tote bags, and even workstations that have places to hang pliers and other tools. This is a handy and practical option, but it can also be a lot of fun as you explore the different kinds of storage options that fit various styles and functions. 

 

Conclusion

 

Luckily, if you have a jewelry maker in your life, there’s no shortage of gift options to choose from. From Czech glass buttons to handy flat nose pliers, the ideas on this list are sure to delight any jewelry maker. Ready to get started? We recommend browsing our collection of buttons, brooches, and vintage jewelry to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. And if you’re not already a jewelry maker, who knows – maybe after taking a look at the options on Zaza of Canada, you’ll be inspired to start getting crafty, too!

Seven wonderful ways to use vintage brooches on your wedding day

If you're like me, you love a little vintage flair on your wedding day. Whether you have a vintage brooch from your grandmother or you love to shop at our favorite store, ZaZa of Canada, or you simply love to repurpose beautiful things, we are sharing seven wonderful ways to use vintage brooches on your wedding day.

 

Brooch bouquets

We've all seen it on Pinterest, but truth be told, until you have seen one of these sparkling stunners in person, you really cannot conceive just how beautiful they are! The best part is that these beautiful "blooms" last forever. They can become a lovely decor piece following your wedding or even a new family heirloom! In Nashville, these brooch bouquets are all the rage. We're still swooning over the one Miranda Lambert carried down the aisle. 

Something Old, Something New and Something Blue

An elegant vintage brooch is the perfect choice for your something old, but where to put it? One of our favorite accents is when it is added to your wedding day purse. If you really want to step it up a notch, we recommend purchasing one of the beautiful blue brooches from ZaZa of Canada for your something blue, too! Then, all you will need is to slip something borrowed into your clutch and you're good to go!

Honor a Loved One on Your Wedding Day

Some vintage brooches feature a space for a photo, which is the perfect way to have your loved ones close. If they don't, your local craft stores often sell charms with a space for a photo that can easily be attached to the pin back of your brooch mixing the vintage with the modern adding a polished look to the base of your bouquet. 

Step Up That Updo

wedding & bridal accessories

 

Whether you're a glam, boho, or vintage bride, an alluring bit of shimmer is truly the finishing touch that your updo needs. By attaching your brooch to a hair clip, hair comb or a feathery fascinator it keeps the allure going well after you remove your veil. 

Stroll the Aisle in Style

Why would you spend all that time and attention finding the perfect gown only to neglect your shoes? This is the most important walk of your life...add sparkle to your step by adding some elegant vintage brooch shoe clips.
 

Accessorize the Dress

something blue bridal
And speaking of your stunning wedding gown, why not give it a little glam? Pin a beautiful brooch to your sash! Keep in mind ladies, it doesn't have to be directly centered, either. An off center sparkle or even one attached to the back to keep those ribbons tied tight are an excellent placement point. 

Glam Up Your Garter

Don't forget to collect up all your "detail" items for your photographer before the big day. Those photos are often the most treasured since those "details" are often overlooked by the bride and groom as they are caught up in the whirlwind of the wedding day. So before you slide your garter set (one for keeping and one for tossing) be sure to give it a little glam with a gorgeous rhinestone brooch. After all, isn't everything a little better with some sparkle?

STYLISH CELEBRITIES WHO WEAR BROOCHES

As Audrey Hepburn once said, “Life is a party, dress like it.”

At Zaza of Canada, we live by that motto, and our collection of jewelry and brooches are here to help make all of your days feel dazzling. Rhinestone brooches and extra large brooches are a great way to add some sparkle and flair to your outfit, but you might be wondering how to wear them. To help you get some style inspo, we’ve collected examples of five fashionable celebrities who have been rocking the brooch trend, and our advice on how you can wear brooches like the stars do.

 

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge is a fashion icon for a reason, and she loves a good brooch! She often wears them in classic, elegant styles, pinned to the lapel of her tailored suits. She also likes to use brooches to add a pop of color, like pinning a big red floral brooch to a simple blue suit. Her outfits are great examples of how you can use brooches to experiment with different color combinations and incorporate some of your own personality into a classic suit look for a formal or professional event. Want to try it out? Our vintage red poppy brooch is similar to one that Kate wears!

Freida Pinto and Blake Lively

Actresses Freida Pinto and Blake Lively aren’t afraid to try something bold: insect-inspired brooches. Freida wore a large butterfly brooch with a red Gucci suit to the Tribeca Film Festival, and Blake turned heads at Spike TV’s awards show when she showed up in a large gemstone beetle brooch on her collar.

If you want to dress like the stars, we sell colorful rhinestone butterfly and dragonfly brooches, like the ones pictured below. Try new things and spread your wings!

 Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek has worn brooches on more than one occasion. At the 2019 BAFTAs, she caught everyone’s eye with an extra large lizard brooch resting on her shoulder. Her daring choice shows us that even celebrities love to have fun with quirky accessories, but she’s also a fan of classic brooches, too! For example, at a Vanity Fair Oscar party, she wore a simple gold and emerald brooch with a red Yves Saint Laurent dress. Our vintage amber-colored brooch, pictured below, is a similar size and style to the one Salma wore. Throw it on as an accessory to a colorful dress, and you’ll feel like you’re at an Oscar party, too!

Queen Elizabeth

The members of the royal family rock brooches probably more than any celebrity—especially Queen Elizabeth II. For 90 years, she’s amazed the world with her unique, expansive jewerly collection. While she frequently wears all kinds of brooches, they tend to be classic, classy, and refined, and sometimes they even have hidden meanings. Our vintage rhinestone wedding brooch comes in a classic shape and style that’s similar to many of the Queen’s brooches. We recommend wearing this one for a night when you want to feel like a million bucks, without having to spend a million bucks.

 

We hope that our celebrity-inspired advice has given you inspiration to try out brooches in your own wardrobe! You can find more in our collection on Etsy at Zaza of Canada.

What Are Czech Glass Buttons?

What Are Czech Glass Buttons? If you want to add a pop of color to your outfit, upgrade your style with a little bohemian flair, or find something special for evening wear, then Czech glass buttons are going to delight you! If you look at our collection, then you will understand why the Czech Republic is world-renowned for their bead and button industry, and why they’re considered to be the center of button production in all of Europe. 


These unique buttons feature intricate shapes and beautiful designs. They also come in a dazzling array of colors, sizes, and styles, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you. In addition to looking gorgeous, they also have a fascinating history. Read on to learn more about these special buttons.

 

History of Czech Glass Buttons

Bead and button making in the Czech Republic can be traced all the way back to the 8th century, when King Charles IV invited German craftsmen to Northern Bohemia to produce glasswork for his Empire. The Czech glass buttons of today got their start in 1764, and production began in a northern Bohemian city called Jablonec nad Nisou. Buttons were originally made out of metal and tin, but as technology improved, eventually they were created from glass found in the Jizera Mountains.

 

Czech glass buttons became a big hit, and in the 1800s, people across Europe began to seek them out for their luxurious, beautiful, and richly-decorated designs. Manufacturing skyrocketed, and by the end of the century, there were hundreds of button pressing plants across the country. More and more button styles were introduced to keep up with the market competition.

 

In the 20th century, thousands of tons of buttons were exported around the world, including to the United States. In fact, one third of all exported Czech glass buttons were sent to America! But after World War II, the industry declined due to expropriation and nationalization. However, even though there are only a few button production facilities left in the Czech Republic, to this day they remain beloved by many people all around the world for their unique and versatile beauty.

How Czech Glass Buttons Are Made

Traditionally, Czech glass buttons and beads are impressively handmade. Craftsmen use metal tongs to press the heated glass into special molds, which they can design with any pattern. This method of creating buttons is particularly special, because it has not changed even after many centuries. When you wear a Czech glass button, just know you are wearing a part of history!

How to wear Mexican blouse?

How to wear a Mexican blouse?

Wearing Mexican style tops is always a challenge, even to me, who wears on Mexican clothing almost all summer long. Why? Because they are often very colorful with large patterns.


So, I'd rather change the title of this blog to: how to wear a Mexican shirt without looking like a parrot.


I'm not talking here about a beach or a fancy dress party where you would be… Frida Kahlo. I would happily let you wear your maxi skirt, large hoop earrings, a small embroidered top while being bare feet... this would all look splendid on your pretty tanned skin.
I'm talking about how to wear a Mexican peasant blouse in town, for a chic cocktail party or even at work: how to wear a Mexican blouse without looking like Esmeralda.
What we want is contrast. A Mexican blouse worn with a classic outfit and a little "boyish cut" can be the most elegant way to promote the culture of Mexico.

 

fiesta style shirts

 

Wear a Mexican floral blouse in the city!


Suppose that you live in South San Francisco, or that it is summertime. Because in January, in Toronto, the Mexican embroidered top will be under your big down jacket.
Mexican tops for ladies are shaped quite loosely, so a pair of slim-fit denim trousers will be perfect. You can wear them with a nice pair of tennis shoes that match the flowers on your blouse, and you're guaranteed to turn heads.
If you want to achieve the boho-chic look of Sienna Miller, you should rather choose bell-bottoms in velvet or denim, which you would wear with platform sandals or trainers.
In both cases, it's a matter of simplicity: no flashy jewelry, except on your hands.

 

where to get clothing embroidered

How to wear a Mexican blouse at a chic cocktail party?


All Mexican embroidery is terrific in every aspect. However, I believe that for a chic cocktail party, the most appropriate embroidery would be the most discreet and delicate. It would also be the most expensive one. I am talking about the blouses from the city of Oaxaca. I admit that traditional Mexican shirts and dresses from Oaxaca are getting increasingly difficult to find and that there are not many on sale. Indeed, I always keep an open eye because these blouses always are a pure wonder.
You will wear this type of blouse or embroidered top at a cocktail party with straight black or white trousers and heels. You can match it with a warm alpaca shawl to leave your pretty shoulders bare without getting too cold.
This kind of outfit would also be perfect for a country wedding.

How to wear a Mexican blouse at work?


Of course, it all depends on the workplace. If you work in an office or a store, the Mexican style peasant blouse is certainly quite suitable. More still, it will attract compliments and questions because an authentic Mexican peasant blouse of good quality are difficult to find.
Once again, choose here a blouse with discreet tones, simple flowers, and an elegant cut.

What is the Coachella Festival?

What is the Coachella Festival

Or everything to know about ''Chella''?

Among all the community events that are held around the globe, music festivals have to be one of the tops most popular events you can attend, given their exceptionally high popularity with people and the youth especially. These festivals host a vast number of participating bands, take place over a couple of days (sometimes a full week or even more), so there’s something here for everyone to enjoy. Although there are many music festivals held all around the globe, the Coachella holds a special place in the hearts of fans who make sure to attend it every year.

What is Coachella? Just a large music festival held annually in Indio, California every year, hosting performances by some of the biggest names in the music, fashion, and arts industry. The Coachella may have started small, but over the last two decades has risen to fame and glory to be recognized as one of the best music festivals to be organized on an annual basis.

Coachella’s main features

The Coachella festival, or the “Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival” in it’s full, unabbreviated form (though some people call it the Chella and save themselves a great deal of trouble), is as the name suggests arts and music festival. The event features performances and concerts from musical artists from many genres, including rock, pop, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music. Even though the arts were not originally a feature of the Coachella festival when it first started, they have turned their role from a side-show to the music to an actual attraction as the years have gone by. Today, Coachella is regarded as an excellent showcase for visual arts, including installation art and sculpture, with many of the pieces being interactive, providing a visual treat for attendees. This showcase of visual art has only grown in scale and outrageousness over the years, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

 

⋙ ⋙ ⋙ SHOP MEXICAN STYLE DRESSES ⋘ ⋘ ⋘

 

 

The Coachella is also very famous for its Bohemian theme and how this theme spreads into all aspects of the festival. It’s traditional for everyone attending the festival to be dressed in Bohemian attire (though not mandatory obviously) and the decorations to be themed with light colors and with those 70’s retro vibes. The choice for having Coachella Bohemian themed only makes sense, however, because much of where the Coachella is held in the desert and the light, free-flowing clothing fabrics characteristic of Bohemian attire are perfect for this weather.

History

The story about how the Coachella came about is quite an interesting one. It all started with a feud between a venue management company (the guys that rent the venue for an event and arrange to a ticket for consumers) Ticketmaster and a band Pearl Jam that wanted to hold a concert in Indio, California way back in 1993. As it turns out, Pearl Jam was unhappy about the way Ticketmaster was handling the ticketing side of things, saying that the company was outright ripping off both the band and the people who’d come to see the concert. After reaching a deadlock in negotiations, Pearl Jam decided to venture its separate way, calling for a boycott of all venues that were controlled by Ticketmaster at the time.

The result? Pearl Jam took its concert to a new location that wasn’t under Ticketmaster’s control and hosted their concert there. While the concert itself wasn’t something too special, the location where they chose to hold their concert formed the ultimate basis of the creation of Coachella in 1999. The site the band chose was the Empire Polo Club grounds, and they're holding a concert there proved the site’s capability to host a significant music event, thus giving Paul Tollet and Rick van Santen the inspiration to start holding the Coachella festival annually. Today, the festival is managed by Goldenvoice, a company co-founded by Toilet and Santen and a subsidiary of the AED Live group and has grown to house an audience of over 250,000 in over the past two decades.

When and Where is Coachella music festival

When it comes to event management, the Coachella is one event that sticks to traditions very seriously. The first Coachella festival was held on the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California, and the venue for the festival hasn’t changed once since the inception of the festival two decades ago. The festival has however grown outwards from this main venue into occupying surrounding areas and branching off its events between these places, to host the maximum number of performances in the least amount of time. The main stages are the Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and Sahara Tent, while newer stage areas include the Oasis Dome, the Yuma stage and the Sonora stage.

While the Coachella festival started as a single day festival, the increase in popularity among visitors and growing audience meant that the event had to be stretched out longer and longer, increasing from one day to two then three, until it finally grew so large that it had to be held on two consecutive weekends in its present state. The festival is held at the beginning of April every year and this year’s Coachella is meant to start on the 12th of April.

What can you expect when attending the Coachella

Given how big the festival has grown over the past 20 years, you can expect a lot of activities at the music festival. Since there are a lot of performances happening simultaneously across the many stages the Coachella occupies, you can always expect to have something to do at the Coachella during any time of the day. Besides music, the festival is a hotspot for art exhibitions and Bohemian inspired fashion shows so you could even give those activities a try if you’re bored with music (as if that’s possible, but whatever). The festival is also an excellent magnet for celebrities who attend it to have a good time so keep an eye out for movie stars and fashion icons; you might be able to get that autograph you’ve always wanted from Leonardo Di Caprio.

Cost of attendance

The fact that the Coachella is quite expensive to attend ($429 for a three-day pass) when it was high ticket pricing that led to its inception is nothing short of ironic. Granted, you’re paying for a great music and arts experience, but the price is still pretty steep, especially considering that it doesn’t even cover living expenses; the cheapest option you have is car camping, and even that can cost you an extra $100 to rent a car spot.

What to wear to the Coachella festival?

Bohemian. Not only is this the traditional Coachella attire, but it is incredibly fashionable and will make you fit right in with the rest of the crowd. 70’s vintage clothes and Mexican style blouses may feel out of place anywhere else, but at the Coachella, they feel right at home, and bohemian style rings and big hoop earrings will much compliment these clothes. Besides, the sweltering heat of the Californian desert doesn’t give you much of a choice when it comes to apparel.

How to dress like a gypsy girl

what is bohemian fashion style

 

Gypsy way of wearing some dresses is not about fashion only; this whole trend is a culture itself, which is worldwide known as Bohemian style. This type of style is beyond just strappy shoes and those dream catchers. The whole idea of bohemian style portrays the freedom and free thinking; it’s about comfort in oneself.

The layers and the lightness in their dress show the adventurous nature and every other accessory is comfortable yet beautiful, which can be carried easily and are inspired by nature. This type of trend does not bound you in something; this whole ideology provides you the most relaxed and effortless way of wearing things. Here are some tips and a brief idea of how to look like a gypsy girl.

  1. Mexican fiesta blouse:

The boho inspired look is almost incomplete without a Mexican fiesta blouse. These tops make the whole bohemian look more happening as they mostly come with the bohemian type of embroidery on the neckline, but if embroidery is not your thing.you can go for the more fabric and less accessorized top. You can have it with a skirt or denim, some earthy jewels and a pair of a comfortable platform heel.
