A former nursing student, Fabienne Costa quit her studies to dedicate her energies full-time to growing her jewellery brand. The CEO and Creative Director of YCL Jewels has gone on to be recognised as a top entrepreneur by Business News Australia, as well as winning the Women in Business on the Gold Coast Aspiring Women in Business award.
Her jewellery designs have a loyal following around the world, with customers hailing from all continents, while her collections have graced various catwalks and lookbooks throughout the years.
As a self-taught jewellery designer, Fabienne focuses on creating bespoke and intentional jewellery, reflecting this in her practice where all pieces are made and finished by hand with minimal waste.
For her, it was important to set up simple and structured processes in her international trades so she could prioritise other aspects of the business. By partnering with WorldFirst, she was able to free up time to concentrate on growing YCL Jewels.
