Emerald Sun Creations was established from a spark of love, a yearning for a creative reboot, and a passion for nature. Dedicated to handmaking beautiful, natural gemstone jewelry with culture, quality, and style in mind, each piece is created from a labor of love. All jewelry is lovingly and meticulously made by hand by Founder and CVO, Wendy Turner, in her Louisiana studio.

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 started my journey as a jewelry designer in 2019, as a way to reconnect with my artistic side. After spending long hours at work, creating jewelry became my go-to activity to unwind and find inspiration. As I began experimenting with different materials to create jewelry, I found myself drawn to natural gemstones. I love the way each stone is unique and beautiful in it's own special way. Working with such beautiful gemstone and crystals helps me to create one-of-a-kind designs inspired by the world around me. Launching my jewelry shop has been a great achievement for me, but I always felt the need 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!
