The JewelryOs® Collection is a handmade line of jewelry from The Family Place of Norwich, VT that directly benefits young Vermont families living in poverty. Each piece of work is individually created by a participant of the Families Learning Together program – a semester-based program helping with high school completion, life and job skills, and parenting for young Vermonters. The JewelryOs® studio is a creative and therapeutic worksite that enhances job skills for our young parents and serves as a social enterprise and an income strategy for our program. The young parents take pride in creating stunning products in the studio, and they take even more pride in earning money towards the program that helps them improve their lives and the lives of their children. The participants sell the jewelry at local craft markets and fairs, as well as The Family Place’s Gingerbread Festival and Annual Policy Luncheon. All proceeds from this project go directly into our Families Learning Together program.
Each necklace is individually handmade with natural materials, crocheted with silk (the color of your choice) and finished with a sterling handmade clasp with our signature cast pewter JewelryOs® charm. This cereal charm is a reminder of the parent and child in all of us.
