Students learned to make beaded jewelry today at Hope for Healing.Org. These kids are being put to work with stimulus money. Today, we learned how to make beaded earrings, bracelets and necklaces. We talked about product development and production.

With the skills of beaded jewelry the kids now can make items for family, friends or to sell for extra pocket money. The sale of the merchandise will benefit Hope for

It's been a busy few days. Other skills learned so far have included weaving chair bottom, sanding wood furniture in preparation for repainting, jewelry making and how to rip material. The material will be used to create beautiful braided rugs. One is already started. When our director returns from her trip we'll add the finishing touches.

In the meantime, here are some photos of the kids at work making beaded jewelry and sample shots of finished products.
