A LITTLE MORE…
Before starting Summer Love Jewelry, I was as a high school Spanish teacher in Austin, Texas for 6 years. In 2011 my husband and I moved to Puerto Rico, where my family is from & where I used to spend my childhood summers.
Working with children was meaningful work for me & a way to give back to society & the greater good. Running a creative business has completely changed my day to day, but with it I have shifted the ways in which I give back by working with local nonprofits like Surfrider, donating sales to hurricane relief efforts, & in general emphasizing the importance of caring for our environment either by self-lead beach cleanups or supporting small businesses that share my values of sustainability, protecting our environment, & social work.

We feel very blessed to live and raise a family here, and are constantly inspired by the natural beauty and rich culture of Puerto Rico. I try to share that through my creations & content, so I hope you follow along & visit Rincón soon!
