Even though Pride Month is almost over, I believe love is love every day and to be an Ally for the LGBTQIA+ community is something I strive for all year round. In this post I am sharing some favorites from our Pride Collection designed for the first Payne County Pride Parade and Festival in 2019, and some other ways anyone can show support besides wearing rainbows.
1. Practice kindness and understanding.

2. Show love and acceptance.
3. Do some research, like why Pride is celebrated every month in June, and why is being an ally important.
4. Keep an open mind and heart.

5. Be an advocate in your community, attend a PFLAG meeting or fundraisers.
When things are dark and scary, sometimes even the smallest spots of brightness can make a difference and all I want for the jewelry I make is to bring some brightness to you anytime you wear it. :)
