Handmade jewelry by Refined Designs
We discovered attractive, best priced jewelry last week that you must learn about, hand crafted by people with “amazing abilities” from Opportunity Works Connecticut (OWC), a non-profit agency that supports people with intellectual, cognitive and physical disabilities in Eastern CT. They are committed to enhancing the lives of people through meaningful and gainful employment services. We embrace the idea that all people can live a fully productive life within their community.
Introducing “Refined Designs” handmade jewelry:
Necklaces and bracelets made from both natural and man-made materials. Many pieces feature natural stones like Agate and jasper which are thought to contain properties for balancing physical, spiritual, emotional and intellectual energies. Other pieces are created using beautiful man-made glass beads, such as Millifiori glass that contains decorative patterns and lamp work beads, a type of glasswork that uses a gas-fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass.
OWC has created other businesses: Potpourri – their own line of whimsical bird feeder houses as well as other yard art and vintage craft items; and delicious Honey.
