Maker Pick: Turquoise Blue Jewelry

Posted by

What a pleasure it is to design and create, a gift and blessing I am thankful for every day- Meg Walker, Designer and Founder of Turquoise Blue Jewelry

Meet Meg Walker. She is a mother of three, a local Californian, and an absolute fabulous jewelry artisan. She currently resides in the beautiful sunny Santa Cruz and has been a Makers Market fave in our store and at our outdoor markets! 

Two years ago, she started her brand, Turquoise Jewelry because of her love for the ocean. She has always loved the shades in the water and colors the ocean brings out. "I create art inspired by the organic colors I love, with the unique qualities of a rare treasure." 

In her designs and jewelry pieces, she hopes her customers will find jewelry that brings encouragement to the soul, is meaningful, and rare. Meg makes it her top priority to give people a custom piece that will be passed down and treasured. She can take any family heirloom and customize it so that you can take home a valuable, one-of-a-kind treasure. We always enjoy seeing her at our outdoor markets and in our store. Thank you Meg for your beautiful turquoise creations that remind us to love the ocean and all it holds.
