CLEARWATER, Fla. – A young woman with Down syndrome has taken her creative business to the next level.
Maxine Simeone makes custom jewelry like headbands and hair clips. It usually takes her about 30 minutes to do it.
She recently asked a locally-owned shop if she could sell her creations inside — and they said, “yes.” Now, you can find her accessories, under her brand, “Sparkles by Maxine,” at a Clearwater store called the Poolside, which is located in the Shoppes on Sand Key . . .
