I hope you are having a fabulous Monday! I came across this unique, stylish, jewelry page that I just had to share with you! The “Queen Caz” collection is a custom designed accessory brand that is fit for a natural queen. Each piece is hand-crafted, and a definite must have for your jewelry collection.
I had the opportunity to chat with the founder of the company Caroline “Queen Caz” Sande, a beautiful natural who is based out of London,UK. Check out our convo below.
1. When/ Why did you begin making jewelry?
It all began the year that I graduated from university (2009) the competitive challenge of securing a job in the events/hospitality industry drove me to pick up a hobby in order to “pass the time” whilst I worked the odd jobs and expanded my experience. This hobby didn’t start off with jewelry making instead I made name tags, purses and cushions from felt material. I transitioned into making earrings following a YouTube tutorial I watched of a fabric flower brooch but instead I turned it into an earring.
2. What are the origins of the name “Queencaz”?
My name is Caroline and my friends nicknamed me Caz but to be different to others with my name I added “Queen”. There is a little queen in us all – why not reflect it in your name. 🙂
3. Where do you draw your inspiration from when creating your pieces?
The fabrics that are used for my Afrofusion earrings are African cloth “ankara” from Nigeria or “kente” from Ghana. The bold, vibrant patterns and colours are an inspiration and a reminder of how beautiful Africa is. I also incorporate small or thick wooden beads that blend or help the fabrics to standout.
The great thing about the earrings is that you do not have to be African to wear them, they are statement, custom made pieces that can be styled for any woman’s wardrobe.
4. What are your future plans/ goals for your jewelry line?
For future plans I am currently looking to make necklace pieces and headbands/fascinators and perhaps a few accessories for men. My goal for the Queencaz Collection is to provide unique jewelry pieces for women, men and kids. To be a creative inspiration for others and ultimately be featured on variousfashion editorials.
5. How can you be reached for orders?
With the title “Afrofusion Earrings” you can send an email email@example.com with your order. You can request the type of fabric/style you want by looking at the current collection or if you already have the fabric of your choice you can send it to me and I make the earrings accordingly.
I am based in the UK but I can ship and take International orders.
