I want to talk about somethings I care deeply about: animals! If you know me at all you know how much I love animals. Not only my cats, or my friends' pets, or all of the cute endangered species photos on the internet, but literally every animal on earth. I believe that every animal, no matter how big or small, endangered or overpopulated, cuddly or ferocious, is entitled to live a satisfying, meaningful life. I live my life in such a way that I try not to harm other living beings in any way. I do not eat animals or their secretions, I do not wear their skins or tusks, I do not support corporations' need to control, breed, and confine them, and I do not think it's okay to make a sport out of killing them. Because of my great love for the creatures we share this planet with, I've started incorporating animals into my jewelry. So far I've been inspired by cats, bunnies, dogs, panda bears, pigs, and birds. There are so many more animals on my mind and in my heart. I'm thinking cows, snakes, lizards, mice, chickens, goats, llamas, fish... there are just so many. If you're as fanatical about animal friends as I am, check out my animal studs here and let me know what your favorite animal is!
