Girls Mentorship

I put a ring on the girls I mentor at church. They are part of a group that works to advocate for women’s leadership and visibility in the church. I love that there’s such a wide age range between them– the oldest one here just finished college, and the youngest one is in first grade. They work together and support each other, and leading this group has been so meaningful and fulfilling for me. They were the obvious choice for a ring because I love them more than anyone in the world and they’ve given my life a lot of purpose. I crocheted my ring with acrylic yarn. The diamond was made in panels that were reinforced with posterboard and then sewn together.
