“I think they’re doing great things and I want to be contributing to that,” says Iley. The transitional home gives young homeless women a safe place to stay and helps them with counseling, education, and other resources. Her dad helps her create each piece and says they have a personal connection to the nonprofit.

Iley creates each piece by hand using polymer clay to shape each pair of earrings. “I kind of like designing and making the slab like putting all the things on it and mixing the colors. It’s good,” says Dunlavy.

She has a shop on Etsy where she sells her creations. So far she has sold nearly 1,000 pieces of jewelry and is donating $1 for every item sold to LovinGrace. 11-year-old Iley Dunlavy from Neosho started creating earrings, necklaces, and hair pins last year as a way to stay busy during the pandemic.

LovinGrace is using the donations for operating expenses and hopes to help more women in the future. “About a month or so before COVID hit, we got out foster license and our foster placements mother used LovinGrace attended there went there because she was aging out of the foster care system. So that’s kind of how it got started,” says Mike Dunlavy, Iley’s dad.
