I recently purchased a pair of earrings from Hawkins-Bucklew Jewelry Designs that I’d been drooling over for a while. The personable and knowledgeable service I received was superb! ~Alta Y. Alexander

The Challenges of Scaling A Woman Owned Small Business
As an African-American creative women entrepreneur, I face numerous challenges other entrepreneurs do not encounter. Statistics tell us three percent of female entrepreneurs scale their companies to 1 million dollars or more. For women of color, it's less than that, it's only one percent.
At Hawkins Bucklew Jewelry Designs we want to change the narrative for female entrepreneurs of color. This is how you can make a positive impact in their lives, the lives of their families, and the community.
What You Can Do To Help
During an interview with the Austin American Statesman and CNN, I was asked how people could support Black owned business.
The answer is simple. Consumers can consider purchasing products and services from Black owned businesses all the time. Not just in the month of February or when "Black Lives Matter" but everyday; just as you would consider buying products from any other small business.
You can also share our businesses with your friends and family members and follow us on our social media platforms.
At Hawkins Bucklew Jewelry Designs our mission is to empower creative women entrepreneurs of color. If you'd like to help as well, make a donation to support our social impact strategy, Showroom 808.
