Our Mission

Our mission is to employ disadvantaged women in Detroit, to educate them on financial management, life wellness and business, and to empower them to successfully transition to an independent life.


About Us

Rebel Nell was started with the sole purpose of employing, educating and empowering disadvantaged women in Detroit. We make jewelry from unique local materials, while providing a transitional opportunity for women in Detroit.  Our goal is to help these women move from a life of dependence to one of self-reliance, overcoming barriers to employment through the fruits of their own labor.  Working directly with local shelters, we identify women who are ready to make this transition to a new phase in their lives.

Our primary goal at Rebel Nell is to restore the confidence in the women we hire.  In addition to employment, we provide financial literacy, business education and a focus on life wellness to help them successfully transition to an independent life.
