Hello my name is Lareina Morgan and I want to help the world by making jewelry and by promoting the arts. I have always loved jewels and mineral rocks. When I was a girl I collected rocks that I thought were pretty.
Some of them were colorful and some looked liked gold or with gold flecks. It was only later when I began to learn about rocks and minerals that I realized that I had stumbled on various minerals and quartz stones, and also I learned that many of these same stones were manufactured into beads for jewelry production.Over the years I learned a little more about jewelry making, but it wasn't until recently that I began my passion again by making jewelry and I realized that my love for these things has never truly gone away.
I want to open up my own jewelry making studio, where I can focus on my hobby as a full time career by producing my own jewelry line of products and showing others how to do the same for free.
I am raising these funds for two reasons: to foster jewelry art and design for those who are interested in starting their own jewelry business, and to raise funds for hurricane relief for the victims of Hurricane Dorian and other hurricane related issues.
I have started to design jewelry pieces for the people of the Bahamas, to encourage them and to show God's love for them and their country. I want to continue to design products for them and for everyone who has been displaced or effected by Hurricane Dorian and any tropical storm issues in the region.
My purpose is to provide jewelry design basics and also marketing and advertising strategies to those who want to market their products online or locally, to show them how they can make an impact in their communities by fostering art and creativity.
The funds that I am asking for will cover:
The renting of a studio for classes and jewelry production
Computer, office and jewelry supplies
Making jewelry training and marketing videos
To develop Basic Jewelry Design Courses for my local community
A portion of all proceeds from my studio will be donated to various charities and organizations that are helping the victims of Hurricane Dorian and other hurricane related disasters: World Vision, Operation Blessing, Let Love Rule Foundation, National Association of the Bahamas, CORE Response, and World Central Kitchen.
The devastation that has impacted the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands has touched my heart, and I realize that it will take many years for those communities to recover and they do not have the means to rebuild, so every dollar counts.
We must show our love by providing love from our hearts and giving generously from our wallets. I want to see paradise restored again so that in the future I can visit those islands and feel the same peace and love that I am sure existed before this devastating event. Please allow me to contribute to those restoration efforts by helping me to design and develop a jewelry line of products to celebrate and commemorate the Bahamian spirit and pride.
To all those who love the arts or who would like to learn to make their own jewelry design, please sponsor my goal to open up my own jewelry design studio. Everyone who donates will receive an original jewelry piece design from me
Thanks You so much for your support and God Bless You!
