Our Story

My name is Esther Akusa; founder, and CEO of Queennette LLC.

Queennette LLC started unofficially in 2016 as Queennette Closet when I discovered my love for making pieces of jewelry out of beads and African Fabrics. I was also very much into home decors and paintings. Then in 2019, I officially changed the name to Queennette while working on my Master’s in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and launched it.

It has been an amazing journey so far as I have not limited myself to just making pieces of jewelry, but I’ve also taught myself sewing. As Queennette grows over the years, so is my self-discovery of the many talents I’m continuously sharing with you.

The name came to me during a time of self-discovery when I was at a very low point of my life. Beading and crafting helping through my healing process. The word Queennette means “little Queen” or daughter of a king and queen. I believe that everyone is royal, as we are all made in the image and likeness of the King of Kings, God All-Mighty.

My goal for Queennette is to empower men and women to embrace education and especially embrace any gifts and talents that God has given them. This is how each of us will contribute to the betterment of the world.

I’m so honored to be on this journey with you. Let us see where this takes us.

Thank you for stopping, hope to see you back soon.

Esther Akusa!
