the hazen storya love for design
Taylor Turner discovered her love for design at an early age.
After being introduced to the art of jewelry-making in 2002 at the age of nine, she dove into the design world after repurposing her grandmother's costume jewelry as new creations. Within six months of beginning to make jewelry, Taylor launched Hazen and has ever since been dedicated to exquisitely handcrafting playful and feminine accessories that embody both timeless elegance and modern sensibility.
For years, Taylor honed her skills on her bead-swathed bedroom floor,
creating nearly all of her collections entirely by hand. As the line has grown, Taylor continues to oversee the creative direction and material selection of the jewelry and has enlisted skilled assistants to help her produce her designs, always with the same attention to detail. Taylor frequently introduces new styles and each design is a limited run. Still today, every piece is made by hand and with much love in Texas.
“Made with love in the great state of Texas.”
A 2014 graduate of the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University, Taylor finds inspiration at every turn. She correlates what she finds awe-inspiring and beautiful in her surroundings into the construction of her work. Each piece of jewelry is Dallas designed and Houston produced – composed of semi-precious materials, emphasizing the natural stones' brilliant colors and textures.
