Hi! I'm Randi
I'm a Brooklyn native, a high school guidance counselor and an animal advocate living la vegan loca.
I live in Rockaway Beach with my husband Steve and our six rescue cats.
Rockaway gypsea jewelry is EVEryday basics for the anything but basic bitch
I use vegan inks and no animal products in any of my items or jewelry making processes. I am consistently trying to deepen my ethical understanding of jewelry techniques and do everything in my power to make my line as cruelty free as possible.
I purchase the vast majority of my materials from other women-owned small businesses all over the country. I like reading hip hop as poetry, being a badass vegan feminist cat lady and laughing really loudly at inappropriate moments.
Every piece of jewelry is made by hand, by me. I meticulously hand stamp each letter one at a time, and I tie a bow on every box. Clearly, the cats supervise the bow tying process.
your purchase saves kitties
One dollar from every online Rockaway Gypsea purchase is donated to K9Kastle Cat rescue in Brooklyn, New York. This rescue is near and dear to our hearts, and we spent many years volunteering for them, While there is nothing more valuable than time when it comes to animal rescue, money is second best.
I'm RYT200 certified
I practice and teach a type of breath focused, gentle yoga that incorporates techniques of both Vinyasa and Hatha yoga practice. I like to describe it as soothing and powerful work from the inside out, instead of the outside in. *Currently, Rockaway Gypsea is on a break from offering private yoga instruction while we grow a tiny human.
I hold a Master of Science in both Secondary Education and School Counseling. While many feel that yoga is super serious and silent, I believe talk and yoga can be quite compatible. While many of my yoga clients are not teenagers, my ability to listen is not age specific. It's my hope that our yoga sessions can be a place for you to find balance, peace and confidence both physically and emotionally.
