A Berea artisan is starting all over, after thieves broke into her business and ripped off nearly $10,000 worth of her handiwork.
Jimmie Lou Jackson said her Hot Flash Beads studio was full of her handmade jewelry and beads before a burglar broke in. The crook also took a TV and CD player.
Jackson said even though the crime set her back, she won't let it get her down.
"They can try and victimize me once, but if I make myself sick about what they took and how much they took from me, I'll be victimized twice," Jackson told 27NEWSFIRST.
Jackson is offering a $500 dollar reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
