Fashion Brief Q&A’s — Introducing you to new and emerging talent and shops in fashion and accessories.
Website: Nafisa Jewels
Q: What made you decide to start Nafisa jewels?
What made me start Nafisa Jewels was the fact that I love jewelry, especially costume jewelry. I like to mix and match different types of jewelry to go with my outfits and I have been like that since I was about 6 years old. Everyone would always tell me they loved my jewelry and one day I just decided to sit down and come up with a plan to sell it. After consistently selling items at my mother’s job and my own job, I decided to open Nafisa Jewels boutique online so the whole world could find unique jewelry-and fun accessories at reasonable prices.
Q: Is there any special meaning behind the name?
Well I wanted a name that represents me as an African American woman and also something that represents all women. I started searching for a unique name and found Nafisa which means “precious” in Swahili. This name really touched me because it speaks to every woman, every woman is precious!
Q: Your site features some really fun accessories, what are a few of your favorite items on the site?
Well of course all the items are my favorite but, the items I love are my “Afro-mud Flap Girl Necklace“, “Brass Knuckle Necklace“, and the “Oh So Yummy Cupcake Earrings“! I love how unique and different these pieces are. I call these pieces hip-hop chic! Oh yeah, don’t let me forget about my favorite favorite item — my “Frog Shower Cap“, this item is just fun!
Q: What jewelry and bag trends or designers do you love right now?
Well I don’t have any particular designers that I love, I just like to buy items that are unique and different. However, I do like Dooney and Burke. I love their colorful bags! Some of the designers I like are Betsey Johnson and definitely Kimora Lee Simmons…I like a lot of different designers.
