Alia's JewelryASAL Bijoux By Alia Bostaji – I started with Raise the awareness bracelets and in no time I found my self designing and creating beautiful pieces that I wanted to share with everybody. After a few house parties, people kept asking me if I have a website so their friends can look at my jewelries. For the first time I am feeling like I really have found what I’ve been looking for. A job that I like, have control over instead of controlling me, and share with everybody. Not to forget the support that I have from my family and friends. Sure enough I started this knowing that I still have a lot to work on. Now that I have the power to support those charities that we all care for, I am proud to say that my workshop is my kitchen table, and in my photos my dishes are very helpful in taking good shots. And for that it is important to hear from you.
