COVINGTON, Ky. — Women empowering women is the mission for a new jewelry store in northern Kentucky.
What You Need To Know
- SoHza Sisters, a new jewelry store in Covington, have donated more than $40,000 to women groups
- SoHza Sisters works to empower women around the world
- Each piece of jewelry and clothing items are handmade
- The store held its grand opening on Main Street in Covington on Sunday, June 11
Vicki Miller, Melissa Henry and Debbie Lupariello own the newest women empowerment shop in Covington, SoHza Sister. Each piece of jewelry and clothing is handmade by women around the world, each with their own unique story.
“They all have different situations but they all have a story. It’s all empowered women that are making a difference, and a lot of the jewelry they’re local to, so it’s like either recycled bullhorn, or recycled bullet casings,” Miller said. “So these women actually find these in the fields and then they can crimp them. So it’s taking something horrendous, and then turning it into something beautiful.”
The three sisters launched their online shop in 2013 with one goal in mind: bringing women together to make a change.
“So we really believe by raising women up, you’re raising the world because women are the ones that make things happen,” Miller said. “So it’s all about women empowerment right and we’re all in this together, whether you’re a local woman, somebody here or a woman over there, we’re all in this together.”
Over the years, the SoHza Sisters have given over $40,000 to non-profit partners, locally and globally.
Henry and Miller hope with a storefront on Main Street, their mission will spread throughout the community.
“People have had this year and a half of isolation, and people are ready to be connected. So we’re going to be doing women’s events here,” Henry said. “And we want this to be a place where women can come and be connected with each other, and then be connected with organizations that are making a difference.”
