While I was in Chicago last weekend, I reconnected with an old friend and sorority sister of mine, Carlee. Since her graduation, she’s launched an incredible jewelry line that I’ve been lusting after on Instagram for MONTHS, so I was super excited to finally have the chance to steal her for an afternoon and check out her entire collection in person. I literally wanted everything!!!
If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you probably know that minimal jewelry is my jam, so I was all over the mixed metals, stackable rings and torque necklaces. But the best part about AmazziRoots is that it’s been designed to create positive change — 10% of every purchase goes to Blood:Water, a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in East Africa.
Curious to know how a Chicago born and bred girl found her calling all the way on the other side of the globe? I’ll let Carlee tell you all about her journey herself. Check out her website to find out more about AmazziRoots’ jewelry and mission, and shop her kickass collection to support Blood:Water today!
