Meet our community
"I admire BraveWorks' ability to bring women from different cultures around a table into a community of support and encouragement."
"Loving these artisans is truly a blessing. It takes my eyes off myself and makes my heart happy. I tell them, 'I'm just here to love on you and all I ask is that you love me back, because I need it too.'
"By creating jewelry and making beautiful works, and knowing others will get to wear these items, I'm able to pass on the encouragement that's been given to me."
