Tiana Holding

For this writer’s choice, I chose to highlight an individual I know and am very close to, breaking into the business world on her very own.

Cyrendipity is an independent business run by my best friend, Cyrena Forbes.

Cyrena Forbes is a 23 year old recent graduate from the Caribbean School of Architecture with an architectural degree. She lives in Kingston, Jamaica and works at an architectural design firm, but on the side, she does some other things that she loves.

I grew up with Cyrena and she has always been creative and crafty. It has always been something that she has been good at and excelled in, and now she’s turned it into a business of her own.

Cyrena makes jewellery, lamps, bags, hair accessories, paintings, redesigns rooms, etc. She has also painted murals in people’s homes and has been hired as an interior holiday decorator. She is an artist who works with different types of media. She has always had a creative eye and I have always been jealous of her ability to bring her ideas to life.

Cyrendipity has a Facebook page where the products are posted with prices. Fans of the business can like the page and also make orders from it. The link to the Facebook: Cyrendipity.

Cyrendipity was recently featured in the Jamaican newspaper The Gleaner. Here is the link to the article about her business: From lego houses to fashionable jewellery – Flair – Jamaica Gleaner – Monday | August 8, 2011.

People have been finding out about her business all over and have been featuring her in many different areas. Cyrena has also been featured in another blog “GREEN THUMB…PINK SPOON“.

Cyrena was also interviewed on TV about her independent business Cyrendipity shortly after.

It has been taking off and doing well and I am extremely proud of her.
