Hi there lovelies. Welcome to my third entrepreneur feature. Today is all about handmade jewellery. Beads and stones and charms oh my 🙂 If you have not heard of this company already let me introduce you to Wrist Culture. Wrist Culture offers exquisite handmade designs for any and every occasion. I am kind of addicted at the moment. I am currently about to buy my fourth piece. Something about this brand just screams luxury and classic elegance. I recently had a short interview with the owner as you know I love to promote small business and I also love to shop. I joke with him all the time that he can take all of my money.

When was Wrist Culture founded and what inspired you to start the business?
Wrist Culture’s debuted in May 2016 with the Royal Court Collection. The two-year anniversary is a little over a month away, May 12th.
The concept of Wrist Culture was to create beautifully beaded bracelet collections with pieces which are both limited in their number but also accessible in terms of price.
Share with us your main sources of creative inspiration.
As cliché as it sounds, music would have to be one of my main sources of inspiration. Listening to artists like Lana Del Rey, Rihanna, The Killers even Rick Ross provides me with such wonder as to “What would the person singing or being sung about wear on their wrist?” Additionally, I have a background in retail fashion marketing where I always tried to tap into the minds of my clients’ customers to anticipate what they’d want from season to season.
Tell us what makes your brand unique?
For me, each bracelet is a work of art designed to be timeless so as to never be too classic or too outlandish. No disrespect to my contemporaries and predecessors, but Wrist Culture has a heavy focus on originality of design, quality of craftsmanship and the after-sales service to ensure customers can enjoy their pieces for years, not just weeks or months. To that end the components are tested, coated to prevent premature tarnishing, updated when better options come along and of course, the First Repair Free service and affordable Bracelet Refresh service to fix, update or upgrade a piece.
What was your favourite collection and why?
That’s pretty tough to answer because each collection will, of course, be special to me for their own reasons but I’ll tell you my 3 favourite collections.
1. The Royal Court Collection which was my very first collection. It introduced the world to Wrist Culture and showed my contenders that this brand was seriously revolutionizing how bracelet designs in Barbados and by extension the Caribbean were done.
2. The Higher Power Collection which came immediately after the Royal Court Collection was one of Wrist Culture’s most successful collections and it appealed to both the religious and free-spirited. Using bone and wood really gave the pieces a feeling of connectivity to both the earth and to the heavens & the spirit.
3. The 2018 Dragon Collection which is a rebirth of the 2017 Dragon Collection. This time around it featured three tiers of designs to reflect tastes and price points. I love this fledgeling collection because it shows the evolution from the 2017 version to the 2018 version and features some of the most beautiful and admittedly polarizing designs of Wrist Culture’s history. Very symbolic as we approach the second year!
Do you have a signature piece?
While each collection does feature an ultra limited edition design, my signature piece is one I wear almost every day. It features Onyx, Blue Goldstone, Swarovski crystals and an Arc du Triomphe charm I picked up in Paris on a sterling silver jump ring. Only one of its kind.
Do you create custom orders and how can someone contact you to have their design made?
Custom orders do comprise a large share of the work coming out of Wrist Culture, and we encourage our customers to be creative and we will work together to create their dream pieces. Simply email us at email@example.com to get started!
What are the goals of the business?
Ultimately, the main goals of Wrist Culture are to inspire other designers to challenge their creations and evolve. Also to get to a point where Wrist Culture can branch out into fine jewellery including real gold and silver links and have charms forged specifically for the brand.
