Founder and Jewelry Designer
Sara Schwartz, founder of Riot Alliance, started this line to connect her love of jewelry making to social justice. As a social worker and activist focusing on social justice both nationally and internationally, Sara uses Riot Alliance as a platform to create art with a socially conscious purpose inseparable from the art itself.
Sara donates 10% or more of her total sales to social justice projects, youth arts workshops, and community organizations that often struggle for operational funding. She also teaches free jewelry making classes to youth and community members where each person leaves with their own tools and supplies.
With each purchase, customers will find out what the percentage of their contribution will benefit, and be welcomed into the Riot Alliance community!
All jewelry pieces are handmade, original designs. Riot Alliance uses semi-precious stones, hypoallergenic 14k gold-filled and sterling silver findings, and beads collected from Sara's travels around the world.
