Lila Clare Jewelry ~ Handmade Jewelry that Gives Back

In my previous career, I worked to support girls and women as they found their voice. Although I no longer make this my paid work, I give by incorporating philanthropy into my jewelry business. 

I honor my past career and my ever-present passions by donating a portion of each Lila Clare Jewelry purchase to charities that are close to my heart: the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Customers can choose their preferred charity at checkout.

By purchasing a piece of Lila Clare Jewelry, you are celebrating yourself or the woman who will wear the nature inspired jewelry, investing in a woman-owned small business, and supporting charities that better our world.

Thank you.


I love animals. I grew up with lots of pets, and currently have three dogs and five cats (all rescues!). I think the humane treatment of animals is very important, and value organizations that save pets and find homes for them. Two of my dogs, Daisy and Lena (pictured), came to me from the Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSAZ). I'm pleased to donate a portion of Lila Clare Jewelry's proceeds to the HSSAZ.
Before moving to Tucson, I would visit my godmother and we would always go to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (ASDM). It's one of my favorite places to visit, and I appreciate the ASDM's work towards conservation of this incredible desert and its inhabitants. Lila Clare Jewelry is proud to donate a portion of proceeds to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.
I have been committed to sexual violence prevention since my late teens, and believe it is a crucial component of giving women a voice. I chose to contribute a portion of Lila Clare Jewelry's sales to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) in order to honor my past work and continue to contribute to work towards ending violence against women.
