Hello guys! My name is Nhu Dong, a Vietnamese girl, a jewelry designer, a young entrepreneur, and a dreamer from Orange County, Southern California. Eight years ago, I left my home country to come to America to pursue my dream with excitement. However, life never happens the way we want it to be.
My first few years in the States were not as easy as I thought it would be since I had to gradually adapt to a new life with the new culture and language which resulted in a lot of stress and anxieties. Sometimes, I felt like I had lost my way, and even myself. But luckily, I finally found my way back in 2019 with lots of positive changes thanks to my family love and support, and most importantly my "self-awakening."
First, I finally got a jewelry design certificate from college after multiple times switching majors. Second, I met my mentor who has encouraged me to open my own business that marked the birth of ''saigoncobae."
I first named my shop as 'saigoncoba' which derives from the word "Saigon" (my beloved hometown), and "coba" meaning "the third or middle lady" in Vietnamese family order since I am the second oldest of the three sisters. However, that name did not create a sounding effect that I wanted for my branch, so I decided to add an "e" ending sound to create a more Americanized melody that is easy for my future customers to remember. So this is how the journey of "saigoncobae" begins.
At "saigoncobae," you can find beautiful, handmade rattan, bamboo bags and jewelry from Vietnam. Besides that, I also offer you guys the unique American-made products that are carefully designed and made by me.
Thank you for visiting my shop, and I hope you guys enjoy reading my story. I know my "saigoncobae" is just a newborn baby, so I appreciate and value your feedback about my products which could help "nurture" my "baby" to develop every day to provide the most beautiful accessories for you.
