Longview students start online jewelry business

Two Foster Middle School students design and make homemade jewelry.

LONGVIEW, Texas — Two students from Foster Middle School in Longview have launched a website for their jewelry business. 

"We make our charms out of resin," Mia Jones, co-owner of MB designs, said. "And we can put anything really that the customer would like we do flowers, real flowers, fake flowers glitter, we can dye the resident to whatever color they would like. And then we usually use a silver or gold chain."

Jones along with Brynn Woods created the business through a class project.

"We worked on a project where students designed a startup business," Jatinder Jhass, teacher, said. "It had to be their original idea, not just a copy of something already offered. And I'm very very excited for these young ladies for the launch of their product."

Jones and Woods say in addition to custom making their own products they have launched their website where they sell their necklaces and bracelets. 

They have also created an Instagram account for their business as well. 

"We've already put so much time and effort into it," Woods said. "We've spent a lot of time on this project. And we've taken it really seriously."

Prices range from $8 to $14. People can scroll through a variety of products. 

The students say they will donate part of their profits to a charity of their choice. 

"We love giving and we love spreading love and joy," Jones said. 

The two say they will continue to run the business long after they completed their class.

"I think we were gonna keep on and it's something that we both enjoy doing," Jones said. "It's like a hobby for us and we love getting to spread that joy and love around."
