Unique Glam Jewelry is owned and operated 100% by myself ,Kami Marie Thorpe.
I first started making jewelry as a hobby for friends and family in 2010 It has always made me feel great to gift a loved one a gorgeous piece of jewelry I make, making others feel glamorous;
always makes me feel just as glamorous As they do!
This video isnt about Jewelry it's about Kami and a horrible night, that helped shape kami into becoming a supporting, giving loving strong independent character
I am a single mom to the most amazing 5 year old boy, Trenton. When Trenton was 22 months old we moved into a new neighborhood, one night our lives were changed forever. After experiencing a tragic attack; waking up to a man On Top of me in my own home at 1 am while i was sleeping with my baby boy laying directly beside me(at the time it was pitch black & unaware who was brutally beating me) I fought hard for my sons and my life and Finally between my son’s brutal screaming and the fact we lived in an apartment , with neighbors and thin walls, he got scared and ran away.
That night changed myself, my son and our life’s forever, I was angry and needed to do something to be able to be the great mom I’ve always been, especially now that my son needed me, to be stronger for him, more now then ever. This meant I had to change all my negative feelings into positive, That’s when I started an all-women’s support group, a safe place where women could vent, share, and most importantly relate to one another (knowing there not alone) a place to help take away some of the ugly and the bad, and share the good times! This is an online group and has been in REM Community Initiatives Directory for 3 years now & has been sponsored by REM, I am a womenz world community initiative going on 3 years, this year!
The Group has been inspiring, and continues to grow everyday with over 700 local members, An amazing team of Admins monitoring, running and keeping the group safe with me!
When my son was old enough to start daycare I needed more than my women's group to help me grow as a person and to help with my PTSD.
I dusted off my old jewelry containers and it was like Christmas discovering all the jewelry supplies, beads and findings to create with I made pieces that night and haven’t stopped since that night. ( I started creating jewelry before my son was born for 3 years but when I started to get popular I found out about Trenton. my miracle baby) That's when I started making jewelry again, loving the thrill of craft fairs ,meeting new people and making new amazing friends and other crafters, meeting new customers, learning new jewelry techniques from other crafters and from custom orders always determined to please them all my customers, because that’s what makes me feel amazing inside and out!
My goal is to make enough money doing what I love to do (making Jewelry) to pay for my rent, my bills, and our groceries,
I have a wide variety to please all my customers because all of you are equally amazing and everyone deserve to look glamorous with Unique Glam!
Let me get help get your glam on today! That's me, Kami Marie
