beYOUteous, a handcrafted jewelry line with the message of embracing individuality, feminine strength, and empowerment is crowdfunding through iFundWomen — a new KickStarter- like crowdfunding platform aimed to close the funding gap for women entrepreneurs, founded by Karen Cahn.
Started by Lawrence Jean-Louis, a creative with a fondness for all things unique and handmade, the name beYOUteous is a play on both the phrase "be you" as well as the word "beauteous". Each piece is meticulously made to ensure that you'll enjoy them for years to come.
The campaign is scheduled to run through February 15, 2017, allotting ample time to pick up handcrafted gifts for yourself or someone special for Valentine's. At the $35 level, the backer can select a stackable ring. At $50, the geometric Turquoise, Cream and Gold Earrings. At $70, either the gold earrings with cream pearls or the Yin Yang Pearl Drop earrings. At $80, the asymmetrical ring with floral and pearl embellishment or the emerald green cocktail ring. Other rewards include the chandelier beaded earrings, "Ice, Ice, Baby" cocktail ring, the striking "Eye See Horus" beaded earrings, plus more.
In a world that constantly tries to imply that we, as individuals, are not enough... we invite you to rethink the narrative and regain your individuality. The underlying message is that it's okay to just be you — every perfectly imperfect inch of you. It's more than okay, in fact... it's preferable. "There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself."
