My passion for jewelry design goes way back. Many moons ago, I made jewelry for myself, family and friends. Occasionally I would sell my designs in consignment shops or at festivals as I moved from various place to place. I’m a bit of a nomad and have lived in Roanoke VA, San Diego CA, Rocky Mount NC, Greensboro NC, Myrtle Beach SC, Ocracoke Island NC, and Williamsburg VA until finally settling down in Richmond VA. I even lived in a Volkswagon Van for a while. Great adventures!!
It was in RVA I began my non-profit career. I boxed up my supplies, set them on a shelf and concentrated on the demands of my career. In 2011 I began to think on the question “Am I Living the Life I Love?” and was really shocked when I realized the answer was “No”. I love the non-profit sector but a part of me was missing – my passion for jewelry design. You know those friends who ask “if you could do anything what would it be?” My answer was always, “design my own jewelry”. In 2012, I finally decided to have faith and take the leap. I resigned my position and am devoting myself to Milepost 64 Designs.
I’m fully embracing this opportunity to build a business I can be proud of while also building a life that is meaningful, purposeful and honors myself and my family. Plus.…I get the chance to work with jewelry components that I love because they remind me of my nomadic past – Sea Glass, Czech Glass, Afghanistan Jade, and some great bohemian style beads.
My goal for Milepost 64 Designs is to combine my passion for the non-profit sector and jewelry design to create a business with a social purpose. I’m still working out exactly what that looks like so I’m starting with donating 10% of my profits monthly to a local non-profit.
If you’d like to stay informed about Milepost 64 Designs Giving Back program, ‘like’ me on Facebook or send me an e-mail and I’ll add you to my monthly newsletter. Of if you are a passionate about a non-profit, drop me a line and we can discuss donating to them.
