Jenifer Sherman-Ruppe is a lifelong maker with a tenacious energy and a heart for community. As a Humboldt State University graduate and former art teacher, education and creativity have been constants in her life. A major theme in her artwork is finding ways to reawaken the conversation of how to transform waste into valuable resources. From large mosaic murals to plastic wearable art, Jenifer’s creations challenge and inspire the ways we think about recycled material. PUR Eco-conscious jewelry was created to ignite conversations about plastic waste. Through these conversations, solutions may be born. Wear them and change the world.
