About the Maker
Kerry Long is a gem of a jewelry maker inspired to create since she was a kid with the nickname Kerry Blueberry. Blueberry Jewelry is her vision brought to life and designing is what she’s driven to do. Inspired by the simplicity of nature, this Central Coast native dedicates her days to producing original pieces women are proud to wear and share.
Creativity comes naturally to Kerry, from her days spent knitting and crocheting with her Grandmother to spinning pottery through high school and college. Over the years she ultimately found jewelry-making to be her true calling while working in a jewelry shop. The experience blended her passion for geology with making things. Today Kerry is proud to do what she loves for a living - which is find simple ways to show off natural gemstones straight from the earth.
Everything Kerry creates is handcrafted with care using traditional jewelry-making techniques. Her hammer forged and brushed metal pieces are all made with her own two hands from raw metals. You won’t find her working with prefabricated or assembled parts. Kerry is completely dedicated to her craft.
Knowing her earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets are often part of customers’ special celebrations is Kerry’s own reward. Much more than a job, jewelry-making a is meaningful way for her to express skill and imagination with happy customers around the world.
