Sandra: Designer and owner of Sanci Travels

How did you become a jewelry designer?

Jewelry to me always felt very personal.  It had to symbolize something, whether it be my children’s initials or something that represented a place in my life.  What made it even more personal was the idea of making my own jewelry with these special meanings.  It started out as a hobby, taking workshops and experimenting.  When people started to notice the little trinkets I was making, I decided I should pursue this.  It truly brings so much joy to me to be able to share my creations with other people.

Where do you draw inspiration?

I travel a lot. And through my travels, I experience different cultures and styles.  When I see something I like, whether it is a shape of a statute or the meaning behind a certain monument, I immediately interpret that into something I can bring into my collection.

Tell us about your design style?

I’m a true Gemini and my moods and style reflect that.  One season I may be into pearls, another season it’s just silver I want to work with.  It really depends on my mood and what I see around me.  But most of all, my pieces always carry a meaning behind them.  Anyone can come up with a design and mass produce it, but I believe that putting thought and love into something you are passionate about means more than just wearing a piece of jewelry.

What are you favorite jewelry trends right now?

To be quite honest, as much as I love the latest in fashion, I don’t tend to follow trends very much.  Trends come and go, what stays is what you will wear forever.

 

What is the most challenging part of owning your own business?

I am the worst salesperson and I am terrible at making pitches.  Luckily, I have people see through my stumbling and tongue twists and over time, my confidence has risen as well.
