About Us

“Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.”   -Minor Myers Jr.

   

About the Shop

Blue Iris Jewelry was founded on the belief that beauty and good should go hand in hand.

The blue iris has long been a symbol of hope and faith. That’s why we at Blue Iris Jewelry carry a special collection of jewelry, each hand-made by artisans who bring good to the world. Some of the jewelry is created by survivors of trafficking finding new occupations, others from impoverished women overseas. Some of our products are created from recycled plastics, and others from metal from bombs in countries attempting to de-mine their land after war. 

For more information on the social impact each piece of jewelry brings, see the Jewelry for Good description listed on every one of our product pages or click here to visit our Artisan Profiles page.

Just like every piece of our jewelry has a story, we know you have one too. That’s why we’ve combined a love of jewelry and social justice with easy returns, customer satisfaction, unique inventory, friendly customer service, and low pricing, to give you the best experience possible as you search for the perfect piece to bring into your story.

That way, you can focus on what’s more important than jewelry—going into the world and doing good.




About the Founder

Hannah Rose found her interest in jewelry at a young age, trying to create bead and wire jewelry from simple metal jigs and plastic beads (losing most of the beads under the couch in the process). Later on, while becoming involved in the modeling community, she fell in love with the ability of beauty – in people, places, and things – to create change in the world.

As she got older, she became passionate about human trafficking and began working in social justice causes primarily in Texas, working full-time in the anti-human trafficking field for nearly five years and coming in contact with dozens of incredible survivors. She continues to work directly with many human trafficking nonprofits, including ones who employ trafficking survivors to create jewelry, candles, and other products to create sustainable and independent income for their lives.

It was the combination of her love for social justice and for art that drove her to start Blue Iris Jewelry, where beauty and good combine.




Giving Back

10% of all profits from Blue Iris Jewelry go to nonprofits working in the human trafficking space through the Blue Iris Give Back program. These nonprofits are specifically Traffick911 (https://www.traffick911.com) which provides 24/7 advocacy services to juvenile survivors of sex and labor trafficking, and the Rebecca Bender Initiative (https://www.rebeccabender.org), which offers trafficking education to the community as well as services to adult survivors for rebuilding their lives and identities post-trafficking. 

 Blue Iris’s founder, Hannah Rose, has worked directly with both of these nonprofits and their management staff, seeing firsthand the incredible impact they have, which is why they were chosen as the recipients of Blue Iris’s Give Back program.
