Make Piece grew out of an interest in the living wage (a wage that supports a family in dignity, given the cost of housing and basic goods in its community) and a desire to model the living wage in a revenue-generating business involving low-income women.
We offer a three-month curriculum in jewelry-making, financial literacy, small business basics and life-skills. We also manage a small, but growing, model jewelry business in which our graduates make and market their jewelry, gain valuable organizational and management experience, and access a broader market for their goods. Our clients earn the DC-area living wage rate for time spent making and marketing goods, teaching classes, and performing office work for the model business. For graduates who wish to develop their own independent businesses, Make Piece provides ongoing guidance to help them strengthen their marketing and business skills.
