Erynn Santos is the founder of B.E., a socially conscious jewelry company made for women, inspired by women, and created for women. B.E. is a nonprofit for-profit, that aids in keeping women in Brazil off of the streets. When working as a stylist in brazil, Erynn met an elderly woman named Ana Maria who was selling handmade jewelry on a ripped towel on the sidewalk. Conversing with Ana ignited something in Erynn...how could such beautiful things be made by someone who had essentially nothing, yet had not given up hope? And so B.E. was born.
