Sydney McMath is an animal lover. Not only does she love them, but rescuing them is ingrained in her as well. While living in South Carolina, she was a certified wildlife rehabber. The current day, she plays at Pat O’Brien’s dueling piano bar. When she’s not tickling the ivories, Sydney is making beautiful jewelry.

Humane Heart Jewelry Company features unique jewelry, Sydney creates one-of-a-kind pieces using the best available materials, including Swarovski crystal, vintage brass, sterling silver, handmade artisan glass, & the finest gemstones created by Mother Nature herself. Combining her love of gems & jewels with her love of all creatures great & small, Sydney donates 100% of profits from the sale of her jewelry to animal rescue, rehoming, & rehabilitation.




1. What products and services do you offer? 

I handcraft jewelry and all proceeds are donated to animal rescue groups. I only pay myself back for the amount of the materials. I know how many of these rescue organizations depend on donations and are completely volunteer-based – this is my way of helping.


2. How long have you been in business? 

I’ve been making jewelry all my life. This aspect has been going on for 10 years.


3. How do people find you online?

4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

Most people don’t realize that I actually donate 100% of the proceeds. When people realize that, plenty of them actually give a little more.


5. Lagniappe Info. 

All of the earrings I make are sterling silver or nickel free.

Locally, you can purchase my jewelry at Salon D on Burgundy, Diamond Eyes on Toulouse, and Zen Pet on Jena!

You can message me directly on Instagram to purchase items.

I would love to be in more retail shops!

I make custom pieces & bridal jewelry too. I can make items that are very day wear to high-end pieces. Working with budgets is definitely something I can handle too.

Urn necklaces for your pets are something I have made too. It’s a special remembrance piece of your pet.
