At first glance, Trish is a pretty unlikely candidate to be the brains and talent behind iDazz.
First, she graduated number one in her college class as a mechanical engineer. Not a field known to produce jewelry designers, do you think?
Second, she was a stay-at-home mother of three – giving up a promising sales career at IBM in the mid-90's to raise her children.
She has 3 children....Caroline is the oldest and works at an Ad agency in Boston. Michael lives around the corner from his sister (in Southie) and works for a tech start up company. The youngest, Drew, is a senior at Trinity College. He plays lacrosse there and you will find Trish (and her husband, Mike) at all his games in the spring.
Three years ago the Kozub clan relocated to Cape Cod. It was tough leaving her home of 25 years in Hopkinton MA, but the transition has been wonderful. The adult children LOVE to come visit, which is a huge perk!
Trish observes fashion & home décor color and style trends and uses a wide array of unique materials that captures them. Much of Trish's design time is spent choosing from among only the finest pearls, glass beads, sterling, gemstones, vintage goodies and crystal. Then she lets her imagination go wild to capture the essence of what she's seeing and feeling.
Trish's final design-acceptance formula is simple. She creates what she likes and would wear herself.
When Trish isn't thinking about jewelry she loves to go antiquing, decorating, spending time with her family, going to the beach and boating.
