Jamaica is not short of talent! The little Island in the English –speaking Caribbean once known for Reggae Music and Usain Bolt have now added Fashion to its repertoire. It was a hot Sunday afternoon when inside the Sir William Grant Park in Downtown Kingston I saw the most beautiful wire jewelry that caught my eyes that I immediately decided I had to meet the designer.

Lisa Beau is a professional “Buntricia” trained make-up artiste who starting creating jewelry as a form of therapy which eventually led to a full line of items. This inspiration she explains came from the encouragement of friends and family who saw her designs and with their stamp of approval “Beaucentric Designs” was born.

The line features necklaces, bracelets, and earrings made of copper which is a reddish color which makes it easy to wear with a number of different outfits. 

The designs can be described as eclectic and unique as the juxtaposition of copper and bold colored pieces make them stand out! 

Once you see a piece of jewelry from “Beaucentric Designs” you will immediately fall in love. It is one of those collections where it’s hard to just choose one item.

Did you always want Design Jewelry?

No, I didn't even know I could design jewelry. It was just a discovered Talent

What inspired you to launch your own brand and how did you come up with the name?

When I started it was more for Therapy and something to keep my mind together. When friends and the family would see the designs I created, they encouraged me to do more and that is where the inspiration came from. I prayed and asked God to give me a name since he gave me the gift and BEAUCENTRIC (Where Beauty Is Eclectic) was born.

Explain your creative process

My creative process is diverse, there is no set process that I follow. I just allow my creativity to flow and I follow it's natural beat.

What is one important life lesson you’ve learned thus far since being in business?

To never ever compare yourself or gift to anyone else and to trust your growth. Who you are is not measured by what anyone else has.

Finish the sentence … on the weekend you can find me …

You'll find me creating and relaxing spending time with my Son.

Tell us about the scope of your work?

Well I have my Jewellery line and purses and I'm also a professional make-up artist. I also paint and to be honest, I have other projects that I'm working on but not ready to show just yet but there is much more to come from Beaucentric.

Was it hard starting a creative business?

Starting any business is hard and yes a creative one is extremely hard! I had to learn every step on my own when you have to also do the business aspect as well as the creative (design) side of things, it's a bit of a challenge.

I'm thankful for the support system as they keep me going. There are many times I wanted to walk away or felt like I couldn't go any further but Jermet and Davine wouldn't let me.

What can we expect from Beaucentric for Summer 2019 and beyond?

Eclectic pieces (LOL) yeah, I have some ideas that I'm working on trying. I'm doing something that I've never done before but that's who Beaucentric is so looking for amazing out of the box collection.

Do you think Jamaica is more accepting of creative careers like Fashion + Design?

Yes, I do -- this generation is more open-minded and out of the box when it comes to fashion and beauty. When I'm at craft shows most of my customers are locals and they love it.
