I have had a lifelong passion for animals and feel as though I have a deep connection with them. It is a feeling that is difficult to describe, but it empowers me to be an advocate for these creatures that do not have a voice of their own. Over the past 10 years, I have made it my mission to advocate for all animals who are being abused, neglected or threatened by euthanasia. It seems as though it is an endless journey, but each and every time I help save an animal, I seem to become more determined to save another. It is incredibly rewarding for me and I find peace and gratitude knowing that I am helping those that can’t help themselves.
Years ago, a friend introduced me to a documentary called Earthlings. It is about the mistreatment of animals and human dependence on them for economic interests. I honestly could not believe my eyes!
It was devastating and changed my life in ways that are indescribable. My heart was broken and I desperately wanted to help them in any way that I could. From that point forward, I have not stopped reading, learning and researching about the corrupt nature of the animal industry. The film is what originally inspired me to get involved with rescue and animal rights. I decided that one of the smartest ways for me to bring awareness to and affect change, would be to blend my passion for jewelry and my mission to save animals. As a result, I donate a portion of my sales to many different organizations that are dedicated to bettering the lives of these helpless creatures, making each and every client of mine part of this wonderful mission.
