About The Artist
Suzana, an Ethiopian native, is the founder of Zuriash Designs. After a brief stint in Europe, Suzana came to New York to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While taking classes, Suzana gained experience as a sample maker and was eventually promoted to designer. During her tenure at the same company, Suzana participated in the Bijorhca Paris International Trade Show, discovered new, upcoming trends and created products and designs that dazzled and delighted her customers.
In 2018 Suzana branched out on her own to form Zuriash Designs. The name, Zuriash is Suzana’s childhood nickname. As Suzana draws inspiration from her Ethiopian heritage, world travels as well as living in New York City, the ultimate melting pot and endless font of creativity, Zuriash is the natural name for her online boutique, Zuriash Designs.
Zuriash Designs are made for women of all ages; they 100% hand-made, wearable, comfortable, eclectic and chic. Suzana uses only quality materials, including Picasso Czech glass, Swarovski Crystals , Pearls, semi-precious beads, and natural stones combined with sterling silver, 14k gold filled, high polished Gold, silver, burnished and Rhodium platings, chain, and links, along with leather, cotton and wax cords.
The 2019 Collection includes delicate, boho-chic and beaded statement necklaces. Additionally, as Suzana is an avid dart player in her spare time, her love for the sport inspired the "Dart Charm" collection.
Suzana is raising two beautiful girls with her husband, Tom, in New York City.
