How It All Started

Wendy - Owner and Founder of Emerald Sun Creations | Gemstone jewelry and accessories

My name is Wendy and I am the Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Emerald Sun Creations. Some people have asked where I got the name Emerald Sun Creations from. Emerald because I'm a Gemini and my birthstone is emerald. And Sun because with every new sun comes a new day, a new start, and new beginnings. My company was created with the ambition to do more, be more, and give more.

I created this shop back in 2019 as a way for me to get back to my artistic roots. I graduated with a Fine Arts degree and like so many others, I found myself not doing what I wanted to do with my career; sitting in front of a computer for 8 hours feeling stressed, depressed, overwhelmed, and underappreciated. Creating jewelry was a way for me to destress after a long day at work and feel artistic again. Launching my jewelry shop has been a great accomplishment for me, but I wanted to do more.

Ever since I was a little girl, born and raised in south Louisiana, I’ve had a deep connection and compassion for animals. Helping animals from all walks of life, all around the world has been a lifelong goal of mine that I'm finally able to fulfill. That’s why I dedicate 10% of each purchase from my shop to animal causes in need. Along with the donations, another way I try to support animal welfare is by exclusively working with vegan materials; that means NO leather, suede, pearls, bone, horn, shell, silk, and other animal materials that may be detrimental to the welfare of an animal.

Over the years I’ve found and learned about different animal organizations that I feel are doing the right thing and utilizing their donated funds in the most beneficial and useful way for the animals. These are the organizations that I would love to donate the Emerald Sun Creations proceeds to. If you know of an animal cause that you feel would benefit from our donations, please feel free to message me on the Get In Touch page. I would love to hear your suggestions! Also, check out our Blog for the latest on donation efforts, charity spotlights, gemstone jewelry showcases and more!
