SHAPING HOUSTON: Natasha Dadwani

Life, according to Natasha Dadwani, is for the “burds.” Born and raised in Pakistan, Natasha gained a love for jewelry and a passion for designing her own things before moving to Houston in 2009. Inspired by her religion, her culture, and her mother, Natasha established Burdlife, a jewelry store that specializes in stackable pieces, anklets, and piercings. As Natasha states, “Burdlife is every young lady and her tiny box of jewelry.” Natasha is proud to call Houston home – recognizing the strong sense of community and fervent support she’s received for her business – and she couldn’t imagine another location for Burdlife’s flagship store.
