I am a new at-home jewelry business owner. I learned how to make jewelry a little over a year ago. I was living at a battered women's shelter and a women came in with a box of supplies and sat down and spent two hours every month teaching us how to make beautiful jewelry. It was extremely therapuetic and relaxing to make the jewelry, but I felt so special having a beautiful piece of jewelry to wear when I absolutely had nothing. I knew then that I wanted to make jewelry for a living! But I do not want to just make and sell jewelry. I want to go to women shelters with a box of supplies and teach these women and inspire these women and leave a box of supplies for them to create jewelry when they have some time. I want to inspire these women and connect with them on a personal level. I do not make enough of a profit to be able to afford doing this and I have had to take up two jobs just to pay for my dream of making jewelry and keeping my website up. I have five children and I need to put them first. But with your help I will be able to give back and you will receive pictures, letters from participants and depending on your donation amount, a beautiful handmade piece of jewelry made by me or maybe even one of these ladies. Please help me give back.
