Gretchen Carvajal is the creator of BRWNGRLZ. She doesn’t normally name any of her pieces after herself, but Ruby insisted (lol). She is a poet, artist, and educator whose purpose is to make girls like her feel seen. Whether through jewelry, poetry, or any of her other art forms, she creates work that is thoughtfully put together and always intentional.

Through BRWNGRLZ she creates collections that people love while also putting her communities first through her financial donations and art direction. This collection would not be possible without her, and her friendship with Ruby and we honor her hard work and diligence to carve spaces out for all of the BRWNGRLZ.

Product info: Lasercut textured acrylic hoop with the words “Island Women Rise” engraved on them. All findings are gold plated brass and nickel free. Each piece comes in hooks for pierced ears, clasps for pierced/stretched ears, and clip ons for non pierced/sensitive ears.
