Announcement    Welcome! Our etsy is truly one of a kind. All of the Kherish artists including myself are autistic. We each have unique creative abilities and our etsy gives the world a chance to see our talents and while (according to my mom) raising our self-esteem through community support. Our creations are distinctive and unique in its own way. Our pieces are not only handmade by (us) the finest autistic artists in Virginia, we have truly put our hearts into the process.

We use only quality genuine precious and semi precious gemstones from all over the world. I mostly use high end 14k gold filled, 14k rose gold filled, sterling silver metal, 14k solid gold and findings made in Italy and the USA. Gold and rose gold filled jewelry (not plated) is heirloom quality with a very thick layer of gold bonded to the inner metal. It will not flake, chip or tarnish it's nickel free and is hypoallergenic. Our solid gold is stamped and most of our solid gold findings come from Italy.

✦About Us | Life With Autism✦

My name is Rachel and I have high-functioning Autism. In case you are not familiar with the Autism spectrum, Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and/or nonverbal communication. There is not one singular type of Autism but many subtypes influenced by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The ways in which people with Autism learn, think and problem-solve can range from highly skilled to severely challenged. Because Autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with Autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges so some people with ASD may require significant support in their daily lives, while others may need less support or, in some cases, live entirely independently. (Source: Autism Speaks).

Having Autism is hard because it is an invisible disorder so you cannot tell I have it just from looking at me. Autism makes my life very difficult because I have a lot of unique quirks that may be hard for others to accept or understand. These quirks helped me get fired from over 40 jobs over the course of my life, which made my mom worry that I would not be able to function and live on my own. At the suggestion of my doctor, she encouraged me to turn one of my hobbies into a business and after years of hard work and dedication, Kherish was born! We have even been able to expand to employ several other artists on the spectrum, which has grown my dream into our dream and reduced my mother's fears to a distant memory. Each and every piece you purchase from us was designed, made and packed by one of us. While we all have different levels of ability, with your support, we are living our dreams and showing our true potential. I hope you cherish your pieces because each and every one is made with love.
