Aziza’s necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings push the boundaries of traditional forms: brass “handcuffs” that nestle the hand; sterling silver rings that hug cuticle beds to accent your nail art or climb the upper half of your finger. “A lot of designers got to the mid-ring, and that was it,” she says with a laugh. “I like to keep going up. When I first created the line, I was like, ‘I want to make something everywhere.’ I want you to have jewelry on the side of your face, on your upper arm, under the cuticle. If you can get it on your toe, girl, I want in on your toe!”
Aziza works from her in-home East New York studio, not only designing but handcrafting her pieces, from cutting metal to sanding and polishing finished work.
