My name's Joy, and I'm currently the Twin Cities Program Coordinator for Ashoka (www.ashoka.org), which is a global network of social entrepreneurs. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in 2011, majoring in NonProfit Management, Entrepreneurial Studies, and minoring in Design.
I'm primarily a self-taught beader, although I've taken a few classes here and there. I've been beading for the last 12 or so years, worked at a bead store for 2 years, and started Joylery about 7 years ago. My stuff is also for sale around Stillwater, Andover, and St. Paul, Minnesota.
I'm dedicated to alleviating the suffering caused by domestic violence, so 100% of the proceeds of Joylery benefit the victims of domestic violence in Chimbote, Peru. Peru has the highest domestic violence rate…
