His Jewels Creations
The power of our platform gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow their business through a global marketplace. Sheri Cleary is one such female entrepreneur who found eBay to be an effective channel to share and sell her jewelry to customers across the world. Her success led to the creation of job opportunities that helped empower other women in her community.
Sheri got her start making jewelry as a way to help cheer up a friend. The positive response she received inspired her to sell her creations – first at a local store, and then through eBay. Her hobby quickly turned into a full-time job. Eight years later, Sheri’s steady sales with His Jewels Creations have her shipping out packages every day, allowing her to expand the business. Sheri now has four part-time female employees who help design, sell, and ship jewelry all over the world.
