Hear about how Bridget Turner Jewellery started....
Inspired by the Sea...
It all began when I spent my summers swimming, surfing and exploring my Nova Scotia beaches and learning to make jewellery from my great aunt Jean on her visits from New York.
That sense of adventure has stayed with me and beach combing continues to be a daily exploration, when the weather is warm of course!
Early in the mornings I head down to the beach before the wind picks up and go on a hunt to find treasures that are left with the changing of the tides. All the while designing in the sketchbook in my mind of what jewellery I want to make. I often come home with those memories of the ocean in my jacket or jean pockets and when I find them again it takes me back to the beach I visited, the air, the smells and the waves I experienced. My goal is to create beautiful jewellery with memories of the sea so you can take them with you where ever you may go.
Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. It is a problem that is dear to my heart and so I have decided to donate a portion of my sales to A21 who is a leader in rescuing, restoring and rebuilding the lives of victims that are affected by human trafficking.
