Anjeanette’s Story

Approximately 2 years ago, Anjeanette Randolph started her own jewelry business Queen Bee Creations. Little did she know that when she started it, it would become a fun way to meet new friends and share a fun hobby.

For the last 6 months, Anjeanette has been mentoring friends and family with and without disabilities on how to make jewelry and the best materials to use. Last month at Independence Now’s Lighting Your Path meeting, she was asked by another consumer “how does she make jewelry and what’s the best way to do it?” Anjeanette gracefully shared her expertise on everything from the best type of beads to use and the best type of string for making necklaces and earrings. She even shared information on YouTube tutorials for jewelry since due to the pandemic she’s not able to go to people’s homes and do one on one sessions.

Peer Mentoring is one of our Core Independent Living Services. Day in and day out, our Independent Living Specialists provide mentoring to our consumers, but this story shows how sometimes that mentoring occurs between consumers!
