Mom’s Becoming Mompreneurs
As mom’s we are so busy with our families. We help our children grow and keep our families on schedule, fed, clean, and as competently as we can we help with homework, social events, sports schedules, and other extracurricular activities. Housework bursts into our schedules and a social life struggles to fill in tiny leftover cracks. We don’t always have time to unfold our own dreams. But then one day we have a bit of time, and that desire, that seed, takes root and so begins the process of being a Mompreneur.
I don’t know who coined this term mompreneur but I love it. The reason I love it is because it holds in its core that the entrpreneur is a mom too. In fact, motherhood is in the forefront of the entrepreneur, not forgotten but included and held out first of the highest importance. The mompreneur unrolls her own intricate dream of a business while still acknowledging, doing, and keeping her own motherhood at the forefront of it all.
I am so excited to share SpiritJewell with you! I love being a part of another woman’s dream coming true. The mompreneur journey is as intriging and gorgeous oftentimes as the end result because we grow as mothers and people as that vision starts to take shape. A vision begins as just a thought. But that thought keeps nagging us. It won’t go away. Years may go by before we may take that first step into making that dream a reality. Our brains mull the idea around for sometimes years and then one day we decide to step out into the world with our ideas and talents (true also for me in my writing and this blog). The result is a new business is born.

I am pleased to introduce you to Sara of SpiritJewell. Sara is a mompreneur sharing her wonderful gift of jewelry making with the world. I have the extreme honor of being a part of sharing her gift here on my blog. Watching women mompreneurs realizing their dreams is such a joy and privilege.
Sara is always smiling, open, and friendly to others. She is gracious and giving. Her genuine kind nature shines through her smile. She has a true gift and makes such beautiful art with her jewelry. I love her descriptions of her necklaces because they are beautiful, true, and honest. They reflect the sheer beauty and spirituality of her pure giving heart.
This is Sara’s story.
Sara’s Story in Her Own Words
I started making jewelry about 10 years ago when a friend and fellow jewelry lover, introduced me to the craft. I immediately fell in love with the process, the colors, and the endless creative possibilities. It ignited something in me that I hadn’t known was there and it became my passion (semi-obsession). Over the years, I have channeled that energy into creating pieces that were personally symbolic as well as meaningful gifts for my family and friends.
I have always been a spiritual seeker and making jewelry became a mode of expression, a way for me to infuse meaning and symbolism into each piece I made. My great love is working with natural stones which in their very organic form hold significant and healing properties that I weave into each piece I make.
I believe we all make meaning in our lives and we look for ways to express what we hold most sacred. It may be our children’s initials, a spiritual symbol, or a statement or word that inspires us. We might just be drawn to a piece because it is beautiful and fun to wear. My intention is to combine it all. I love wearing on the outside what is most meaningful to me on the inside.
I believe that we are all connected and my prayer, intention, and hope are that the love and joy with which I have made each piece of jewelry is passed to you or to whoever wears it.
Namaste, Love and Gratitude, Sara
Sara is a wife and mother.
