Before moving to Puerto Rico & starting Summer Love Jewelry, I was a teacher in Austin, TX for 6 years. It was meaningful work for me as I saw it as a way to give back to society and the greater good. Running a creative business has changed what my day-to-day looks like, & with that I’ve had to shift the ways in which I give back to my community. With campaigns & sales of my jewelry, I have been able to support a wide variety of causes & organizations, from hurricane relief to animal rescue and much, much more.

Currently: A portion of sales from these PR Charm necklaces (also now available here in gold) are going to support HJR Reefscaping, a local group of marine scientists who are treating sick corals in the waters around Puerto Rico, Vieques, and Culebra. Check out my previous blog post here to learn more about HJR Reefscaping and their mission.
