As a single mother for a part of my life, I know first hand how challenging it can be to obtain a steady income. One of my former employees passed away as a result of HIV-AIDS. During that time, I felt that she needed to do something else that would occupy her time and earn an income, yet also keep her spirit and self-esteem high. The solution was beading.
Most importantly, this craft allowed her to earn additional income to support her kids. Over the years, I have trained approximately 10 single mothers and their children to produce beadwork for my greeting cards, tin cans, bottles, and wall hanging designs. As such, I’m more than happy to continue this initiative since it creates a possitive outcome on so many levels.
More pics will be added later to the gallery that will highlight the beadwork created by these talented individuals.
