Here is how she got there
I have always loved the idea of selling goods and owning a business someday. As a little girl, I sold everything from lollipops to t-shirts. I could probably sell an air conditioner in Alaska in the middle of Winter.
My mother, who was a professional seamstress, took the time to teach all of her children, both boys and girls, how to sew. She also sent me to home economics classes where I learned to crochet, knit, and cross-stitch, but nothing about jewelry making.
Learning the trade of jewelry making was always a challenge for me, but in everything I do, I put God first and I always overcame my challenges.
My ambition to make jewelry, started on December 17, 2015, when the leader of my small group gave me a journal as a Christmas present. In that journal, I was to write down my vision for 2016 and the future.
The first thing I wrote was jewelry making and owning a shop. I wanted to design fashion jewelry and accessories and one day be able to own a brick and mortar and run my boutique. However, I did not know how to craft jewelry. I knew how to sew and embroider, and that was just about it.
I decided to pray and surrender my vision to God. With faith and courage, I took on the task of teaching myself—and my vision was born. Armed with newfound skills and commitment to fulfill my dream, I launched Precious Jewels in January 2017.
My passion keeps me motivated to perfect everything I make. I craft all jewelry by hand one precious piece at a time. This is what makes my products so unique and special. As much as I love creating something from scratch, I enjoy the peace and satisfaction of seeing God’s handiwork through me. Without God, Precious Jewels will not be where it is today. So I give all thanks, praise and honor to God first and to my mother for her hard work, dedication, determination and patience; my family for all their support and patience for not giving up on me; my JFJ and AOBC familes for their continuous prayers, for believing in me and my vision, and for lifting me up along this journey.
