Help Support the Cause with Emma Claire Jewelry
Recently, I was introduced to Emma Claire’s homemade jewelry designs. Emma creates each piece individually by hand making it a one-of-a-kind item of wearable art. This month, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, Emma has created a chic hand-beaded pink and white bracelet, so stylish and charming!
I asked Emma how she began designing jewelry. She told me, “My mother instilled in me a love for making things when I was very small, and I would often spend hours upon hours concentrating on making a village out of femo clay or mastering complicated friendship bracelet designs. My crafting obsession waned for a while when I began college two years ago, but I realized how much I missed it and began making bracelets for myself. When I realized that I had too many to wear myself, I decided to start selling them on Etsy, which was a struggle at first, but after much hard work my business is up and running and I love it. With this business, I am able to combine more than one of the things I love to do.”
Emma decided to create a breast cancer awareness bracelet because her mother fought breast cancer twice when she was young. Emma told me, “After seeing her triumph over this terrible disease, I wanted to be able to honor other women who are doing the same. I also wanted to make sure that other mothers, sisters and friends are all able to survive as well- which is why I opt to donate 50% % of profits on this bracelet to breast cancer awareness. I hope this bracelet will be able to inspire hope, help with research, and, as always, add glamour to any outfit!”
Emma also donates 20% off her total profit to World Vision (www.worldvision.org), an organization known for the “sponsor-a –child” program. World Vision also provides healthcare, food and other services to people in other countries in need. Emma told me, “I love being able to help others, and this helps to fuel my desire to sell. Because I know every sale I make helps a child eat for a day, or helps young girls recover from the trauma induced by sex trafficking.”
So this month, do something good for yourself, Breast Cancer Awareness and World Vision by purchasing a beautifully hand-beaded bracelet by Emma Claire Jewelry:
