Here´s an unscientific description. People use their sense of smell more than we think. We just tend to focus more on eyesight and hearing. Emotions and memories sparked by scents are emotionally stronger than others. It is still unknown to science why that is, one possible explanation suggests that the reason is the olfactory nerve´s direct contact with the amygdalae, which in turn are part of the limbic system, i.e. the part of the brain that processes emotional reactions and memories.
The effects of scents are individual, as is the case with memories. Minun Iloa jewelry can be worn as traditional adornments as part of your attire, as a source of your preferred fragrance, or as your personal amulet
Tanna, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a jewelry designer?
I am the founders of the Crea Iloa Company. Im not afraid of work, but i do feel that it does not have to be that serious. I chose to do what i really wanted to do, and that puts a smile on my face.
I have worked as entrepreneurs for several years. The foundation from which i start is solid and built by myself. I do not know what lies ahead for me next year, or further down the road. All i can do is make plans here and now, which is exactly what i find so exciting. I am embarking on an adventure and a future built by me and my team.

When i started Crea Iloa i had business parter. But he was not as committed than i was and what i still am. I did lost lot of time when I expected him to do the same amount of work. And he didint work as hard as i did. I should have note much earlier than he is not the right business partner.

Please tell us Tanna, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a jewelry designer?
I met a Japanese buyer in Sweden at the fair. he was really interested in my jewelery but did not make an order. I went to the negotiations with him for a year. I sent samples, new pictures, i told about my new collections and sent small gifts. In Japan, gifts are highly appreciated. Finally I designed two new color jewelery in the Japanese market. then he ordered. I had to get to know the market better so I finally got an order
Tanna, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
The previous example also applies here. I had to learn to see the case from a Japanese subscriber point of view.
understands him and reduces his uncertainty and makes jewelry easy to order.
