The Need was started by myself, Andrea Cutshaw, in Atlanta in 2015. I left Asheville in 1992 to attend college. I moved back July 2017, with my 8yr old son, to care for my mother with Alzheimer’s.

I’ve worked in the fashion industry for the last 13 years and it inspired me to create.  I have always loved creating in various forms. I began making the necklaces using various components so that each one is unique. I had a great response and added beaded bracelets.  No two treasures are the same! Take a look…..because you never know what you will need.
