Archived: Crystalexculsive: As a Fashion Therapist, my company will provide Fabulous, Fun, Trendy statement jewelry for women who are unapologetic about their style

Personal Story

My name is Crystal Noel, I was born and raised in the beautiful island of Trinidad and Tobago. Yes, I am a “Trini to D Bone!”. I moved to New York to pursue my dream of fashion entrepreneurship. I feel like I was placed on this earth to live in fashion and when I die, (God forbid) bury me in glitter and fashion jewelry. This monumental enthusiasm and passion for this industry, started when I was a young girl growing up and I would watch my mom dress up for work. Mummy was a courier in the government service before she got promoted. However, she would dress as if she was the boss. She always said, it doesn’t matter what position you hold, dress like you are the one in charge. When my parents got divorced, I was too young to understand it, but I was hurt. The neighborhood I grew up in often got a bad rap. When people ask where I lived, they would give me that look, but I love it there and I always will defend where I came from. I was determined to follow my dreams even coming from a so called ‘bad area’. My older brother moved to New York when he was very young. On May 15, 2005 he was shot and since then he has been wheelchair bound, it’s heart breaking, I don’t know if I can get over that until he walks again, he used to be so good in basketball. Soon after I began a career as a Financial Advisor, I traveled often, so my friends always asked me to pick out accessories and clothing for them, I’m honored to see them so happy when they love what I picked out for them.

Business Description

I love what I do, I get excited and passionate about what I do. As a Fashion Therapist, my company will provide Fabulous, Fun, Trendy statement jewelry for women who are unapologetic about their style. A statement necklace is a great way to spark a conversation, as women often complement each other on their jewelry. When you wear strategic pieces and you get complemented, this in turn raises the endorphin levels in women.

Not too long after being laid off my retail job I decided to do what will truly make me happy, which is to start my own fashion jewelry boutique. My dream is to have my collection featured in big retail stores. As my company grows, part of the proceeds from one of my power necklaces will go to an organization that prevents and help victims of child abuse. CrystalExculsive seeks to evoke glamor and to always Give Value First!
