“My mom raised me in rural New Mexico. She always believed in me and, in a way, that’s what Etkie is doing for other women. We are believing in and investing in them so that they have the resources and opportunities to support their daughters.” – Sydney Alfonso, Woman You Should Know

Sydney is the Founder of Etkie, a jewelry and accessories company committed to the financial and social empowerment of Native American women in New Mexico, women who are wildly talented, master beaders. The brand’s new collection of handmade wrap bracelets blend modern design with traditional heritage. In a word, they are… STUNNING!

But in order to get them to market and provide five new female artisans with a steady stream of work, Syndey recently launched an indiegogo campaign. If you love what Etkie is doing and want to help, you have until June 4 to be a part of this inspiring journey and make a difference in the lives of these women.
