I joined Monarch Jewelry back in August, 2011 after doing a service project night at Crisis Aid and making soda tab bracelets with my women’s bible study group. I made over 250 soda tab bracelets back in 2011 with over 40 hours of volunteer time in a 5 month time frame to earn a $1000 community grant from my employer, IBM for Crisis Aid.
Monarch is blessed to have a wonderfully creative & generous jewelry maker named Jeanine. She lives in Mississippi & we have never met her, but her sister works at Crisis Aid International & told her about our passion to help raise awareness & funds for the US Refuge Home. Jeanine suffers with MS & spends her day making the most beautiful & unique pieces, like the one pictured. If you look closely, she cut a section of scripture out & rolled it into a scroll! She is also amazing at wired jewelry. So everybody can do something as we work together to chip away at ending the insanity of selling people for sex.
