Hi, hello, how’s everyone doing? If you haven’t been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about my new business venture — a jewelry brand!!!
Trinket Traces, LLC is now OFFICIALLY in business as of December 15, 2020.
It’s still crazy to believe that I even launched my own business amidst all the things happening. Owning and having the opportunity to build up a business has always been a dream/goal of mine.
I’m so ecstatic to have reached this milestone sooner than I even expected since it was only last year that my year was completely turned upside down.
But what exaclty sparked the idea?
Honestly… many factors came into play with the launch of my business but let’s start all the way from the beginning.
Flashback to the early 90s while living in the Philippines. I was just a young girl when my parents gifted me a special trinket. Though it’s difficult to remember the precise moment or my reaction, I can assure you that the sentiment of joy is something that stands out from this memory.
Who knew the impact this tiny, gold, adjustable flower ring would have on me in my 30 years of living?
The memory of me not wanting to remove this special trinket is still fresh in my mind. It is still considered one of the most treasured pieces of jewelry that I own. I feel the same excitement now, as when my parents first put it on my little finger.
My jewelry collection grew throughout the years since my gold flower ring. From necklaces, earrings, to watches of all kinds, handmade, fine jewelry, you name it — I enjoyed trinkets of all kinds.
My passion for jewelry was nothing more than just purchasing from my favorite boutiques at the time. It wasn’t until these recent years after my favorite brand closed down when an idea sparked in my mind.
Though this idea was thought of way before this hot mess of a year happened, the events of this pandemic and other unfortunate events only propelled me to take action and make things happen.
Never in my life would have I thought that THIS YEAR in 2020, would be the year that I started my business. I see it all as a blessing in disguise and without the right mindset, determination, and perseverance, I wouldn’t have pushed myself to take this step. This venture would’ve probably been delayed further and for all of that, I am GRATEFUL…
Creating my own jewelry brand and building a place where I can express my creativity and skill set while empowering individuals has always been a dream of mine.
My goal was to create a brand that inspired people to embrace the life they lived, while showcasing their authenticity and individuality, through something as little as jewelry.
If you know me, I crave originality. I’m usually the type that follows my own path and avoids the mainstream norm. I love to advocate owning your true self and why not express it in this way.
Each piece has been thoughtfully designed and hand-crafted to share the little traces of my trials, triumph, and everything in between. I wanted to create pieces that not only related to my life but also to provide a trinket that reminded people of their truth & their story.
It’s been almost 2 weeks since I launched my business on and the amount of support I received has been so heartwarming. I appreciate every single person who has congratulated, liked, commented, shared, subscribed, and showed love towards my new business. I’m eager and hopeful to see how my business
