KOZAKH was founded in 2013 by Cyntia Kozak after an unexpected move brought her from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to her new home in Los Angeles, California. With a background in fashion, and a passion for making jewelry, Cyntia arrived in LA with a head full of ideas, her jewelry tools, and a dream to share her passion for fashion and design with the world.
KOZAKH came to life as a creative outlet for Cyntia, who has been a lifelong accessories lover, and a long time jewelry maker. When creating her first designs, she didn’t realize that she was outlining the creative direction that would one day be the backbone of her brand. “I wanted to create jewelry that had a modern feel, but was also timeless. I was my first customer, so it had to be affordable, and the kind of jewelry I could live in every day. Quality and materials are things I've focussed on from the beginning.” This type of jewelry is now called “demi-fine,” but back when we started, it was just a concept for a kind of jewelry that was high quality but still affordable.
KOZAKH now is led by Cyntia, as the sole designer and creative director, and her husband Greg, as the business strategist. Oh yeah, did we mention that Greg was the reason Cyntia moved to the US? This is also a love story.
