You ever wonder where stars like Rihanna and Alicia Keys get their cute accessories from? Well look no further we found the source of all those dope earrings, necklaces, and bracelets you’ve been seeing black stars wearing this year.
Cubannie Links is the brainchild of jewelry designer Annie Basulto. This Miami native has been making major moves this year with her handmade accessories.
‘CL’ as she likes to call it, started earlier this year and has already caught the eye of fashionistas like Rihanna (who can be spotted rocking her pieces at numerous events), Alicia Keys, and Kat Deluna.
SOME OF THE PIECES THAT THE STARS LOVE
ANNIE ON HER INSPIRATIONS & GOALS
NAME DROP: Cubannie Links was officially born in March 2007 but was cooking in my oven since Summer 2006. The name is a blend of “Cuba” my heritage, and “Annie”, my name, creating my fabulous alter ego!
INSPIRATION: My inspiration is my Mom and my family. I have a really supportive family that has always been there, no matter how stupid my choices have been! I am inspired by the strong woman I see in my mom and a lot of female entrepreneurs in the world.
GOALS: I see Cubannie Links expanding nationwide, maybe a few Cubannie Links Stores. Not sure, absorbing and learning all that is happening now. As far as I know the future has so many roads and possiblities to take me! I’m ready for that ride!
