Jewelry charms are all the rage right now, even in the world of young fashionistas. Enter Tracy Sanders and her adorable brainchild, SassaB Linkable Charms. Her daughter, Brooke, a little fashionista in her own right, grew bored with typical accessories. Using a charm from her own collection, Tracy decorated Brooke’s barrette and thus, the seed for her new business was planted.
From bejeweling her daughter’s hair adornment, the idea grew into a business creating linkable, tradable charms in all different varieties. In recent months, SassaB charms have made their way into the world of reality TV, making fans of Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow. While SassaB Charms have already made an impression on some of the RHOC tweens, Tracy would love to see some SassaB charms accessorizing the pre-teens of Kandi Buruss and Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives of Atlanta and in the future, hopefully, Bethenny Frankel’s daughter, Bryn. Tracy, a fan of the Real Housewives’ franchise, relates to the entrepreneurial spirit that the ladies in the series embody.
All the charms hold a special place in Tracy’s heart, however, the Panda bear was the first charm created for the SassaB line. Looking at the charm reminds Tracy of the happy beginning when the idea for her jewelry began to flourish. The heart and rainbow charms were also two charms chosen for the line by Tracy’s nieces. Also, SassaB is not just a ‘girls only’ club; Tracy’s son, Hudson, adorns his backpack with the snake, squirrel and blue horse charms. Hudson looks forward to creating a sports charm collection with mom in the near future. Speaking of the future of SassaB, what else is up next for Tracy? Drawing from her roots as a young woman in NYC, the new women’s collection will have a very edgy, rock and roll type vibe.
I have had the fortunate experience of receiving a SassaB bracelet and charms for my five year-old daughter. My daughter, K, fell in love with the many options of charms and could not stop switching them from her backpack to the bracelet and even hung them on her jacket zipper. Not only did I find them absolutely adorable, but also I truly appreciate the lobster claw clasp that keeps the charms secured to each other or whatever my little diva attaches them to. The secure clasp avoids the tears that often come and money lost when a charm gets lost.
