I am always on the look out for the latest, cutest chicest accessories and imagine my delight when someone suggested Expressions Bracelets to me. They are so fantastic! I am a Gemini so I thought the brown one was so cool and I am in love with love so I had to have it!
I had a conversation with SaRatta Reeves, the creator of these baubles and this is what she had to say:
How did you get started?
SaRatta: I started making jewelry for myself and received a large number of compliments about the jewelry. Then I started making it for family and friends and they were very pleased. I didn’t think much of it until a very special friend suggested I start selling them and set up an Etsy shop. I already have three other businesses on Etsy and didn’t see how I could manage all three but decided to give it a shot. The rest is history. It has become my full time job.
What/Who are your inspirations?
SaRatta: I am inspired by different color combinations and styles of jewelry I see in magazines, fashion trends and mostly just a need to allow others to be able to fully express their style.
What’s the most challenging thing about your business?
SaRatta: The most challenging thing is doing everything by myself. Outside of a 15-20 hr/week part time employee, I am it..shipping and receiving, customer service, marketing, designer, photographer, technical support, accountant, inventory management, etc. It is 24/7. But I know that all of this is paying off and that keeps me motivated to keep growing.
What’s your favorite piece?
SaRatta: My favorite piece is an Autism collection that I just designed. It is in honor of my niece who is Autistic and it reminds me of how special and unique she is.
What’s the best thing about your business?
SaRatta: I am my own boss. But better yet, I am able to adorn people with my expressive jewelry and give them something they can treasure.
What can we expect from Expressions Bracelets in the future?
SaRatta: I just launched a line of engraved jewelry which includes necklaces as well as bracelets. Expect this brand to become a household name. Also, expect to see my brand in more boutiques and magazines within the next year.
