{made} community wrapping us in awesome September 4th!

by Jackie Fetter in ,

Tiffany Ralston and Rachael Roewe, owners of {made} community, are wrapping their mini works of art and philanthropy around our wrists again this year. At Made they give a portion of their profits to organizations that grow and give fresh food to others. Their mission is amazing 


"we are makers.
our jewelry is a mix of objects found & new. our pieces support non-profits that grow, give & educate the importance of fresh food.
this quarter, we are partnering with Local Foods Connection." 



These unbelievably creative women create jewelry from new and vintage materials! They have fun walking, doing yoga, reading, seeing live music and spending time with others. 

I recently had the pleasure of recently seeing Tiffany as a panelist at Workplace Revolution. She wanted to share about the event with Shero's!
