Nin doesn't like ordinary jewelry, Her designs are fun, whimsical and unusual.
Nin had a hard life growing up. Her mother left just after she was born. Her dad came to visit for a bit when she was in 2nd grade, then left. She was raised by a very poor grandmother. When she joined The Well as a 17 year-old single mom, she said, "I don't think I've ever been happy.
Now 21, Nin is not only a creative designer but one of our most skilled jewelry makers. She also regularly joins a team reaching out to street sex workers. She is working towards her high school equivalency diploma, and hopes to one day work with senior adults.
By working at The Well, Nin is able to care for her five year-old son, who attends school in the neighborhood.
