About Pink Mango Grove
How it all started...
Pink Mango Grove grew out of a passion for making and creating things. I fell in love with handmade jewelry when I was in college, the entire process from designing to sourcing gemstones to making and gifting pieces. Jewelry making created a happy place for me, it was meditative and invigorating.
After years of making jewelry for myself, I started sharing my pieces with family and friends. I wanted to make more and more! But reality sank in... there was no time! I was a full-time mom, middle school teacher, and Navy wife. Not only was my schedule full, we move every three years!
So what's a girl to do?!?!? After many conversations with friends, family, and my super supportive spouse, I decided that during our next PCS (permanent change of station) I would quit my full-time teaching job and open a small online shop.
I had no idea what I wanted my shop to look like, but my love for handmade gifts, vibrant colors, passion for adventure and non-stop quest for happiness led me to launch Pink Mango Grove.
My intention is to offer small batch jewelry and gifts, crafting and jewelry making supplies at an affordable price. All of the stones, components, and materials used are thoughtfully curated in small quantities. It is my hope to bring color, good vibes, and easy to wear pieces to your everyday life!
Why Pink Mango Grove?
I was born in Puerto Rico, surrounded by beautiful beaches, saturated vibrant tropical flowers, pineapple fields, and lots and lots of mango trees. My favorite flower is the flor de maga. Flor de maga is closely related to hibiscus, but unlike the hibiscus, the flor the maga grows on a tree. It is often vibrant pink or red. The giant pink flowers are my favorite!
One of my fondest memories is watching my mom sitting under a mango tree enjoying a fresh off the tree mango. A smile on her face, as she enjoyed this sweet simple pleasure. She still loves mangoes and every time I visit, she sits on her back porch enjoying her favorite fruit and embodying one of my most cherished memories.
Thank you for joining me on my journey and letting me share my passion with you.
