Student Spotlight: Emerson Hood

I have so much fun designing earrings! I love being able to make new designs, use different combinations, and choose different stones. After being gifted an earring-making kit for my birthday two years ago, I found my love for making jewelry. After a few different designs, I had lots of people asking me for a pair of earrings. I was selling them at camp, to family members, and even just friends who saw them. My projects were really doing well so I decided it was time to start a business!
