A Hesston woman who turned a hobby into an international jewelry business is selling a specially designed necklace to help raise money for one of the Boston bombing victim's families.

“Rusted Chain” founder and owner Beki Hastings designed the necklace after the Boston bombings. As a mother, she says she was most affected by the news that one of the people killed was 8 year old Martin Richard.

"I just woke up the next morning after the Boston marathon and could not get his little face out of my head and I just had so much grief for his mom,” Hastings said.

Each necklace is 28 dollars and ten dollars of that will be donated to the Martin Richard Family Fund. Not only was Martin killed, his mother and younger sister remain seriously injured.
