Interview with Claudia Amling of Good Wave Gifts in Santa Cruz
I had the pleasure of interviewing Claudia Amling, a local artist. We had to do the interview with Claudia Amling of Good Wave Gifts in Santa Cruz, over a Zoom Call, due to the current Shelter in Place Order here in Santa Cruz. However, during this interview we explore Claudia’s background in marketing at Yahoo in Germany and how it lead to her current passion for corporate gifts and gifts for the event market.
Claudia loves creating unique pieces, branding, and giving the perfect gift. She uses the beautiful Santa Cruz nature as her inspiration. And with her stainless steel corporate gifts, she can make an abundance and spread good vibes to more people. Her passion is to make art that have a special and meaningful message so that whoever receives it will always find joy and connection within the piece.
Her goal is to communicate the values and the message of her clients with an unexpected and meaningful gift to their clients, employees or guests. The customized gift, handcrafted with Recycled Sterling Silver, is a gift that lasts longer than a bottle of wine or a gift basket. Limited edition Good Wave Gifts make a valuable high-end keepsake, a lasting gift that keeps giving good vibes and positive associations with her client’s brand or event.
During this time of Sheltering in Place, Claudia is wanting give back and thank our Santa Cruz community by having people nominate someone who has helped them during these hard times or are simply someone in need of a smile. And she is then giving away one of her Good Vibes bracelet to a nominee every third day in April. How awesome is that? The Good Vibes bracelet and the message the goes along with this beautiful bracelet, is to “touch it and choose good vibes because you always have a choice.”
