Tell us about your business.

Bounkit started from my living room, and in 2006 when my wife was expecting our first son, I had no other option but to bite the bullet and get a small studio in midtown. It has been a great journey because I really enjoy what I do, and especially when we get so many compliments from our customers and the media.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

Our company grew to be of twelve employees. We moved to a whole bright floor with a showroom, kitchen, dining room, stones room, and enough space to celebrate all the employees birthdays and special occasions.

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by the colorful land where I was born Morocco. Also by my fascination with the old Hollywood movies. And last by the confident ladies who are not afraid to wear bold jewelry in an elegant way.

What makes your business stand out?

I think my business stands out because the collection is made in USA. We have a great relationship with our customers. The editors like the collection as well as the celebrities.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Follow your dreams and never give up at the first obstacle you will encounter.

What does American Made mean to you?

American Made means to me quality, Independence and pride.

    I love my Bounkit earrings! Hassan Bounkit is a genius!

    I always receive wonderful compliments, and love the fact that they are interchangeable, I can wear them to brunch with the girls and convert them to a girls night out pair of earrings by adding the drop! they are truly wonderful.

    Hassan Bounkit designs beautiful jewelry! The first pair of his earrings that I got were the green onyx drops. I have received so many compliments on them. They're as comfortable (I love the clip on style) as they are beautiful. He truly is blessed with a gift from God with his jewelry designing! He also takes the time to respond to any comments you leave him, which says a lot about the man he is.

    Dear Shelley, Thank you for bringing up the comfort feature of our collection. A lot of people assume because it's big and bold , it must be heavy. But it's not. Our earrings are not made of casting, instead they are made small settings soldered together with sterling silver for durability . It is time consuming and labor intense. But that's the only way they can be light and comfortable. The comfort of my costumers while wearing the jewelry is my biggest priority! I appreciate your reply.

    Hassan's jewelry is absolutely stunning, and women will stop you and ask where you got your gorgeous pieces of wearable art. They truly make your outfit something special. I also love that he's a family man, and takes pride in making his pieces right here in the USA. Thank you, Hassan, for bringing your lovely jewelry to us.

    Dear Patricia, I am humbled and touched by your beautiful words! Thank you for serving in our United States Army, because you give us far more than I give. And for that I salute you!!

  • larmanda 30 Sep, 2014

    Bounkit deserves to win because they make extraordinary and timeless pieces that make me feel special and that is why I wear them all the time! I can't wait to add more pieces to my Bounkit collection.

  • hassan 1 Oct, 2014

    Dear "Larmanda" Timeless is the word. Not only the way the jewelry looks, but also how it's made. That's why we offer a guaranty life if we have the materials on hands. I'm glad you mentioned that you carry them with you all the time. That's the reason I made all my designs convertible. For example the same earrings can be worn in 4 different ways. Thank you!
