I am not a huge jewelry know-it-all, but I do love elegant and classic pieces to liven up an outfit and give my overall look some pizazz! When I ran across the jewelry from Jilzara, that was made of premium clay beads, I was in awe. I have never seen clay beads look so stunning! Honestly, I always thought clay beads looked kind of cheap and too big. But the handmade clay beads by Jilzara were different, a whole other dimension.
JILZARA™ is a small business that focuses on quality, fashion-forward design and a commitment to customer satisfaction. They design jewelry and watches made with the very finest, premium handmade polymer clay.
Jill Manzara, the founder of JILZARA™, (now you see where the company name comes from) brought clay beaded jewelry to markets over a decade ago. With years of experience behind her, she has now created a premium jewelry line showcasing a new standard of design and quality.
HOW JILZARA™ DESIGNS ARE FORMED
JILZARA™ products start with unique artwork created by Jill and her daughter, Shayla. These original designs are brought to life by skilled artisans using a technique called “caning." Once the beads are hand-rolled from the original cane, they’re baked in low-temperature ovens, cooled, buffed, cleaned, and finally, finish for the jewelry pieces.
The material used to make JILZARA™ products is polymer clay – a synthetic clay with a resin base. It’s extremely durable and showcases color vibrancy beautifully. The designs are never painted on – the pattern on each original piece is layered all the way through the clay and will never wear off. All JILZARA™ products are made from only the highest quality clay available and premium metal parts.

My wrist has never looked this good. I swear, this watch is impressive. The beads are each unique and finely detailed. I am astonished at the skillful work and craftsmanship of such tiny beads! The silver dividers add a delicate touch to the clay beads, spacing each one apart. The watch face is high quality stainless steel, fashionable and pairs beautifully with the delicate beads.
The one concern I had before getting this watch, is a concern I have with all flexible band watches, bracelets, or anything else you have on your wrist… is it going to pinch my skin and/or arm hairs constantly?
Well, I have been wearing this watch (and getting dozens and dozens of compliments) for a couple weeks now, and I am happy to report: it doesn’t at all. The watch is smooth and glides gently on my skin. Each and every bead is smoothly rounded and rolls without pinching!
Overall, I am THRILLED with Jilzara and their handcrafted, one of a kind jewelry. It won’t be long ’til I am covered in earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces made by Jilzara. That is how much I am sold on this company’s unique pieces of jewelry artwork. I highly recommend getting these pieces for yourself or buying it for a loved one, it would make a great gift for Mother’s Day, Valentines or …
