For 13-year-old Taylor Burghard, one person’s trash is her profitable micro business! Taylor saw the potential for recycled jewelry after using the keys from an old Mac computer keyboard to make a pair of earrings. As friends admired her work, Taylor decided to create her own micro business selling the fashionable jewelry! Her company, TekChick Designs, fashions earrings and necklaces from recycled computer parts, featuring standard and custom designs. Taylor’s idea isn’t slowing down. She is featuring her product at a number of expos this year, and selling online and at certain retailers.
