On the old blog I had a series where I interviewed CuraGlammers that inspired me and that would inspire my readers. I decided to come back with this serie.
Today I’m introducing you guys to Bold Fashion Curaçao, an online fashion accessories store run by a nice girl named Junaiska Geferts.
For a while I’ve been seeing some nice and creative necklaces running around on Facebook and I was curious to find out who was making and selling these. I finally found out who was the face behind this online store and I arranged an interview with her so you guys can find out more about her creations.
We all have those days when we are bored and have a bit of inspiration to write, make something or just paint.
This is how Bold Fashion Curaçao started; Ms Junaiska was in her room looking for a way to get distracted. She was already making beaded necklaces for a while, but wanted to start making something more different & bolder, which makes a simple outfit stand out. That’s how the thought came to buttons. With some research done, she came to the right choice of materials and the right way to make these accessories last.
Using her surroundings, materials and outfits as inspiration makes her create unique and bold accessories.
Materials she uses are buttons, beads, feather, cloths and many more things. Lately she made a nice one for one of our fellow blogger over at Houseoffstyle with sand. A work of art that took at least two weeks to finish.
When she first started she told her sister about her idea and designs. Then she showed her creation to the family where she got a great feedback. After that she decided to go out there on the field and show more and more people her products where the reaction was also super great and started getting orders to make more. Being in the field she got also big offers like a fashion show with The Curaçao Next Ambassadors last year and the Curaçao Brunch Series (an event coming up this Sunday). There are also more big offers that she got, but you guys will have to stay tuned for that to get more information.
A work of art can take at least 3 hours a day. And every piece will always be unique so you’ll never have to worry that someone out there will have the same necklace as you.
She started giving some courses also on how to make these types of necklaces. I got to see some of the creations of the students that took part of the class and I got to say. They were really nice and gave me some more interest in learning how to make these necklaces. Of course the classes didn’t include super difficult creations and everyone from every age is welcome.
And as the name says: Bold Fashion Curaçao, it doesn’t stay only at making necklaces, but also bracelets and earrings. With the idea in mind to branch out to clothes and everything that has to do with fashion. With the latest request she got of making a dog leash with the materials she uses. So I’m definitely looking forward for this.
And lastly a tip she had for everyone that had the same crafty hand and wanted to start their own business is to just go ahead and do it. Nobody is going to do it for you. You just got to take the risk and do it. “Be proud of what you do, Carry it around with you”. Take this from her. She doubted herself too.
