A Journey to Puerto Vallarta

After managing a jewelry boutique for a time, Cassandra found her niche in designing silver jewelry that celebrates the diversity of its wearers.

In 2007, Cassandra opened her own shop, Cassandra Shaw Jewelry. The boutique quickly gained popularity and has flourished over the years thanks to a loyal clientele who seek out its distinctive treasures.

Unique Selling Points and Customer Engagement

Cassandra Shaw Jewelry is also known for its Chihuahua rescue dogs, which are a prominent feature in its advertising.

Passion for Philanthropy and Community

Beyond her business, Cassandra is deeply involved in charitable organizations, particularly local animal rescues.
