About Us

The Little Catholic empowers women through hand-crafted, meaningful pieces that cultivate deeper faith and evangelization through beauty.

We believe that Catholic jewelry organically inspires faith, peace, and perspective in a unique way every time we look in the mirror or glance down. We know that beauty is God’s way of speaking to us here on earth. Catholic jewelry allows us to treasure those moments and reminders more closely to our hearts.

At The Little Catholic, we believe in creating uniquely beautiful jewelry and rosaries that are ethically and lovingly made by hand. All of our pieces are individually made by artisans in Los Angeles, California.

Our impact extends beyond jewelry and empowering women. We also empower and partner with non-profits around the globe, designing beautiful pieces unique to their cause and donating a portion of all proceeds back to their mission. Giving back is one of our fundamental values.

We hope you love your new pieces and we would love to see photos of how you wear your The Little Catholic pieces in your daily lives!

About the Founder

My name is Priscilla and I grew up in Southern California. I was baptized Christian, but never practiced any faith growing up. In my young adult years, I was blessed to work for a devout Catholic. She always listened to Catholic radio and encouraged me to do the same. I greatly respected her and admired what I perceived in her to be a deep religious sensibility. Whatever she had, I wanted it.

So, I started to listen to Catholic radio and, in particular, the live rosary recitation. I even organized my day so I would be in the car when the rosary aired. The program host then reminded everyone that Dec. 8th was a “Holy Day of Obligation.” I didn’t know what that meant, but he said we should all go to Holy Mass. Little did I know that it was a Marian feast day, which providentially occurred as I was falling in love with the rosary. The mass was beautiful and deeply affected me. I decided right then and there that I wanted to be Catholic. Thanks be to God, I received the rest of the Sacraments the next year.

On a whim, I started making rosaries. Then I started selling them. I have a background in interior design and a keen eye for the aesthetically pleasing. As I discovered more about my faith, I began to fall in love with various saints and devotions. Naturally, that led to more jewelry and The Little Catholic was born. I committed to presenting the beauty of the Catholic faith in my jewelry to the best of my ability.

The Little Catholic is now a family owned and operated small business. All our products are ethically made and sourced in the USA. Not many jewelry companies can say that. The materials cost more, but I can vouch for their quality and consistency firsthand, from the beginning of the supply chain to the end. Furthermore, I employ myriad vendors within a 50-mile radius and a percentage of a series of items go to my favorite charities like the Sisters of Life, the CFRs, crisis pregnancy centers, and the Labouré Society. This strategy was a gamble and an uphill battle, so I am incredibly grateful for all your support these past two years.

My jewelry pieces keep me close to our Lord and I hope they do the same for you. They remind me to pray and to ask the saints for their intercession. Finally, in our increasingly secularized society, my Catholic jewelry is an outward sign of the truth, beauty, and goodness of our Catholic faith. They’re conversation starters and they encourage others to, as St. Paul said, boast in the Lord.
