SymplyEbony: First of all, your jewelry is AMAZING! What is the inspiration behind your designs and are they reflective of your personality?

JeanaAcosta: Thank you SO much! I really appreciate it. The inspiration comes from multiple sources. First and foremost, women. I love seeing what other women are wearing. Other designers and artists also give me inspiration. I wouldn’t say they reflect my personality but my personality goes into each design. It’s about the woman wearing the jewelry.

SymplyEbony: What prompted you to create your own line?

JeanaAcosta: I started designing my own jewelry and others loved it so I started creating for everyone.

SymplyEbony: Do you recall the first time you spotted someone wearing one of your creations? What was your reaction?

JeanaAcosta: I can’t say I recall the first time, however I always get excited when someone is wearing something I made ! It’s one of my favorite feelings.

 

SymplyEbony: What’s one thing you wish you’d been told before starting your business?

JeanaAcosta: Every business has a learning curve I’m still learning this one. It’s never ending.

SymplyEbony: Jeana, you’re a strong advocate for women.  What would you like other women to  learn from your experiences?

JeanaAcosta: With support we can accomplish anything. Go seek your support if you don’t have what you need. Don’t use that as an excuse. Also, support all girls and women. We all need it. Especially the strong ones.

SymplyEbony: Jeana, meeting you was truly an awesome experience! Thank you for SymplyConversating with me today!

JeanaAcosta: I Enjoyed it !! Take care, Ebony.
