Fashion Statement: I need a job!

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.

When a couple of Florida women lost their jobs they made bracelets with a simple message: I need a job.

We thought they'd be good candidates for our 30 Second Pitch but it turns out being out of work has turned into a full-time job for them.

Watch CNN affilate WBBH's Anne Imanuel's story and find out more about the bracelets by clicking here.

If you want to be part of the 30 Second Pitch send us your comments here or on twitter @KyraCNN.

    Kyra: I don't know what has come over you – but your language expressions are becoming vulgar and crude. Please lose such expressions as "hosed" "hell" "crap", etc. I'm sure you have a richer vocabulary than was exhibited this morning. If you are a big sister, would you want a little sister to be listening?

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Hello Kyra,

    I am a single parent who has raised a son. My son graduated from high school this year. He will attend a University in Texas. I have worked hard to assist him in making his dream materialize. I have taken the advise of President Barack Obama. I've taken the liberty of furthering my education by obtaining a degree in fashion design. However, I have not been able to obtain a job in my field of interest.
    Although I am remaining optomistic that someone will assist me in accomplishing my dream. I would be mostly grateful if you would allow me to give a 30 second pitch on your network. Perhaps someone will see me and will grant me that "once in a lifetime opportunity".
    I look forward to hearing from you.
