Some people tell stories with words. Others take a different approach.

Origami Owl is a jewelry business which was started by a teenage girl from Arizona in 2010. It really has nothing to do with the art of Japanese paper folding.

Bella Weems wanted to earn enough money  to buy a jeep on her sixteenth birthday.

So, she decided to design jewelry, especially lockets.

She named the business Origami Owl because Bella really enjoyed origami as a child.

The business really took off. She took it to a mall in Arizona in 2010, and made thirty to forty thousand dollars in one weekend.

Today, Origami Owl is a multi- million dollar company.

Sally Belk from Scot County is an independent designer for Origami Owl. Customers can choose from several charms, and place those charms inside of a locket.

Sally says each locket has a unique story to tell, and is very meaningful to the person who is wearing it.

Sally points out that the jewelry line has empowered women across the country to earn a living and become a force for good.

Today, the company has thousands of independent  designers. Sally Belk is proud to be one of them.

Belk donates locates for charity events. The mission of the company is to love, inspire, and motivate women of all ages to realize their dreams and empower them to make a difference in the lives of others
