We had the good fortune of connecting with Sabrina Akyol and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sabrina, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
As soon as I laid my eyes on the first piece of jewelry I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. My family has been in the jewelry/diamond business for many generations. this gave me access and knowledge from an early age. I created Sabrina A Inc to design and handcraft high-end unique jewelry without the mark-up.
What should our readers know about your business?
We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about This business was created with the idea to make high-end jewelry accessible to all without compromising quality. all of our jewelry pieces are handmade to order in Los Angeles. every element specifically designed, meticulously handcrafted for each unique individual.
How did you get to where you are today business-wise. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges?
Starting a business from zero is never easy. it takes a lot of time and dedication. especially in the jewelry world since there is a big market. what made us stand out from all the jewelers was the personalized process we provide when we create a jewelry piece and our unique designs.
What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
The lesson is to never give up on your dreams, even though they seem far away. if you are determined, consistent, and unique in the process, you will succeed
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
starting off with brunch I would take them to catch LA for their mimosas & oysters. after that, I would take them to Malibu for an afternoon to catch up with my bestie at a place with breathtaking views. to end the night I would take my best friend to Barton G restaurant in Los Angeles for a nice meal and indulge in their signature sabrina cocktail. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family always has given me support and mentored me my whole life. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
