Our Jewelry making project - "Women helping Women" - “Mujeres Apoyando y Ayudando”
We have been teaching jewelry making to various women since 2017. But we restarted in December 2021 with Mary-Ellen Rushworth helping us again. We are grateful for all the time and work she has put into teaching. She has been amazing!
The monies the men and women have earned is encouraging them to listen and learn - and Mary Ellen is so much fun and creative to work with!
The women have learned all about real gemstones and their meanings. Their first collection focused on jade, amethyst, onyx, carnelian, turquoise, aquamarine and unakite.
We are all so proud of their work and Mary Ellen is having a lots of creative fun with them.
