MEET

THE TEAM


WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

We’re a diverse and small-but-mighty, fun to be around (because work hard, play hard, right?) team united by a passion for all things jewelry… and cake.


There’s more to care about than just profits and creating sparkly things. It means constantly upping the game, looking after people and the planet, and leaving things better than we find them.


As a small business and a small team, we’re intimately involved with the life of every piece. From the raw materials to creating it, to getting it on your finger - we're obsessed with exceeding expectations with each one. 


We want you to feel how much you matter to us, and give you the best experience possible.


After all, it’s YOU who helps us make a meaningful change in this world.

MERI

FOUNDER AND CHIEF VISIONARY

Meri is the founder and creative force behind Gardens of the Sun. She has a big vision for the impact our jewelry will have on the world, with a fearless blend of storytelling passion and out of the box thinking - like, she’s that person that creates strategies in her sleep. She’s on a mission to meet every single person in our supply chain, so we create jewelry that makes you feel better than before and while supporting everyone involved in making it.

ANNISA 

CO-FOUNDER AND COPYWRITER

Annisa is the co-founder, making Gardens of the Sun a true women-owned enterprise. She’s a brand guardian and champion, using words to give our jewelry wings and meaning. Whether it’s the cheeky one-liner on our packaging or the poetry that accompanies our jewelry, Annisa injects delight, heart and personality into all of our writing.

FERRIS

CHIEF OF OPERATIONS

As co-owner and Chief of Operations, Ferris is a multi-task chameleon, connecting the dots across our customer service, production, visual and marketing teams. She’s excited about bringing ideas to life from start to finish and finding creative ways to drive our growth. Most days she’s deep diving into planning product launches and handing all things social media, other days brainstorming new ideas and sharing our newest drops.

CHARISKHA 

CHIEF SALES AND MARKETING OFFICER

Chacha is responsible with capital “R”. Through digging into analytics, planning the customer journey and coordinating brand awareness, she’s a wizz when it comes to pulling together strategy and implementation. Thanks to her, we’re known as the go-to brand for ethical jewelry, making our clients brag about us to friends and family. Besides that, she’s the right hand woman to the Directors. We’d be pretty lost without her. 

EVI 

CHIEF SUSTAINABILITY OFFICER

Evi lives and breathes sustainability. She’s here to help us level up on the sustainability playing field, ensuring Gardens of the Sun becomes increasingly ethical and responsible. She improves transparency in our supply chains, implements our sourcing policy and paves the roadmap to getting B Corp certified, while thinking about the impact of every single decision we make. 

WULAN 

PRODUCTION MANAGER

Wulan ♡ quality. All jewelry will make their first stop on her desk! She’s the woman in charge of getting your jewelry made. Wulan raises the game on our quality standards and building systems for our production, ensuring they work seamlessly, and are fast as lightning.

YUDI 

OFFICE COORDINATOR

Making sure the day-to-day operations are running slick and smooth (like making sure the fridge is fully stocked), Yudi holds down the fort. She makes sure we all get paid on time and helps us run efficiently as a business.
