About the Designer
“If you can dream it, you can create it. But you first must dare to dream.”
Hi, I’m Kenza Barrada, a Morrocan-born, Bali-based Jewellery designer and self-made entrepreneur, with a deep commitment to women’s empowerment through art and creative expression.
I wholeheartedly believe that our souls come here with their own unique expression to share their deepest truth and that we only have to be willing to hear and answer the call.
My call came in the form of a dream. My late grandfather appeared to me one night with a message to open my heart and follow the stirrings of my soul, despite the unconventional path they may take me on. The message resonated so deeply that I knew I had to take a leap of faith.
Shortly after I was intuitively guided to the island of Bali where the vision for Kasha Bali was born.
After a morning meditation, I came across a man on the beach who I felt drawn to talk to. He was a local Indonesian man and he told me that he was in a hard place because no one was ordering jewellery from him anymore. I went home, sketched some necklaces and gave him the designs.
Mind you at this time I was barely getting by financially and had many personal challenges but I believe in the power of giving.
When he created the pieces, I was amazed at the quality so I decided to sell them at the local market and to my delight – they sold out.
At that time, I didn’t really give much thought to what I was doing. I was driven by passion, by the desire to do something good and by doing what I love – designing wearable art.
In a short period of time Kasha Bali grew into a global brand available on every continent. Our pieces have been featured in publications like Vogue and Vanity Fair and have been worn by international celebrities.
I am very proud of these achievements but what I attribute the success of Kasha Bali to most is the energy from which it was born. The jewellery represents all the strength, love, faith and inner trust that we must find within ourselves in order to bring our greatest gifts to life.
Each piece of jewellery is infused with sacred intention, inspired by the fearlessness and grace of exceptional women from across civilisations and crafted with the utmost attention to quality.
My vision is that when you wear a Kasha design you remember your own powerful nature and embody your true divine essence.
