At the age of fourteen, my creative, entrepreneurial spirit could no longer be contained. Caroline Lee Designs (carolineleedesigns.com) was established during the summer of 2015; I became an entrepreneur. I used my spare time to design unique, handcrafted jewelry and accessories. Since childhood, I was always interested in creating. As a young teen, I was into all sorts of crafts such as knitting, jewelry making, sewing, etc. My business first began as Cases By Caroline, in which I would design personalized and very unique phone cases. Soon, this category of business became too confined for my creativity. I expanded my designs and branched off to found Caroline Lee Designs. Caroline Lee Designs, my new adventure, would prove to be not only a hobby but an outlet for my creative design. Any free time I had, one could find me designing products. I decided to create handcrafted jewelry and accessories as a start. My first line of products included freshwater pearl and leather jewelry. Pearls are a girl's best friend. Some of my most popular products have included the beaded leather wrap bracelets and personalized hand stamped bracelets. My favorite pieces to create are the hand stamped ones because I have the opportunity to personalize the bracelet with coordinates to a location dear to someone’s heart, a cherished Bible verse, or even a favorite word. I enjoy handcrafting each design and sharing my story with others. What once was a hobby, has transformed into a growing venture. After I created my business, I made the decision to donate and give back to some organizations that I have volunteered with. Establishing Caroline Lee Designs has allowed me to explore the world of business and marketing. As a business owner, my greatest goal is to impact the lives of children in local foster care and the impoverished children of Uganda. Each year my heart is touched to know that kids can be fed, clothed, and educated through the proceeds of my small business. Rather than describing my business as work, I would consider it a ministry with life-changing benefits.
