After a decade of working in NYC's fashion industry, Bunny Shapiro traded in her East Village apartment and executive Meatpacking status for a chiller life at the beach.
In November 2015, Bunny moved to Puerto Vallarta Mexico to teach English, but she stumbled upon a bead supplier, and started making bracelets instead. Friends and family started buying up Bunny’s collection and suddenly her namesake brand was born. Overnight, Bunny Shapiro became a one of a kind online shop of kaleidoscopic beaded jewelry, all handmade in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
Thanks to the success of her online business, Bunny opened her first brick and mortar boutique in downtown Puerto Vallarta in July 2016, and by October of that year her work was featured in Cosmopolitan and Seventeen magazines.
