SANZA Jewelry was founded by Sandra Za. with one goal in mind: providing a high quality, smart, and reliable online jewelry store. Sandra's passion for excellence has driven her from the beginning and continues to drive SANZA Jewelry into the future. Born Colombia and raised in New York City. Sandra found her love for jewelry at the age of 10 years old. Her mother worked for a jewelry factory in Manhattan, New York and would bring the jewelry supplies home to put together, assemble and return at the end of every week to meet the demand. It wasn't long after Sandra learned to make her own jewelry and sell to her closest family, friends and neighbors.
Later on in life Sandra attended AVEDA Institute of Cosmetology in SOHO and began her career as a make-up artist and hairstylist. She worked for and learned from celebrity make-up artist Ilana Harkavi the original founder of what is today IL-Makiage. Sandra collaborated with photographers and models for editorials and runway shows. After years of traveling from one photoshoot location to the next she decided to focus on hairstyling. During the years that followed she worked along side a few celebrity hairstylist such as Eji Yamane at his then salon Eiji Salon on Madison Ave and 46th, Norman James and Renee Serra at their SOHO location Space Salon.
At the age of 30 Sandra moved to L.A. with her now husband to get married. They now live with their loud, super active and smart boys. Jewelry is a passion that has always held a special place in her heart especially because it reminds her of the countless hours she spent beside her mom. Having SANZA Jewelry has brought her passion and dream to life while raising her family.
