If you're looking for the right accessories to rock, check out Annie Basulto's top five reasons to buy Cubannie Links.]
They're handmade by me, Annie Basulto. They're made out of Brooklyn, NY and all of them get special treatment. The first collection was experimental and fun and trying things out. I hardly make any of my [first] pieces now, but I will say that first year that I was trying it out, one of the pieces that cultivated from that was the Tupac Rosary. The Tupac [piece] is one of the originals that's been there since I was figuring it out.
2. Big Things Come In Big Packages
Since it's a trendy, oversized earring, sometimes people get scared of the weight. One thing I've stapled my collection by is it looks heavy, but it's not, so women get to enjoy the jewelry.
3. Cubannie Loves The Kids
We now have a children's collection, so if you have children you can have matchy-matchy pieces with your kids. [It's called] Hijo Hija.
4. From The Carpet To The Corner Store
There's something for everybody. There's something for high school kids to a more mature audience. [And there's] something that fits everyone's style--you can go to work, you can go to the club, you can go to church. You can pick something [from the collection], and it will fit your lifestyle. [If needed], some pieces are red carpet to the corner store!
5. Exclusive Mass Appeal
Buying a product from us is a unique experience. It's one-on-one, [and] all orders are made by me so you will feel the special, one-on-one attention that you don't get in those mass-produced stores.
You decide. Will you purchase the Brooklyn-bred jewelry line?
