"I met a group of women who were trying to sell their necklaces. When I met them, they were home bound, diffident, they didn't feel like they could enter mainstream society because of the social, economic, linguistic barriers. So, along with a friend, we had a home party, just invited a few of our friends, just to see if their jewelry would sell. And we found that within an hour, we had made over a thousand dollars! We had somebody who wanted to host the next party.. so the Beaded Treasures was born."

- Surekha Kulkarni
