For many people the perfect place to relax and get away from it all is a visit to the beach. If you are lucky enough to live near the sandy shore and get to take in the serenity it brings by breathing in the fresh air and having the sand between your toes, you are the envy of many. With Dune Jewelry the Original Beach Sand Jewelry Company®, you can have your very own little slice of heaven with you all year-long wearing something from their custom-made jewelry line.
Inlet Cuff Bracelets (pictured above): These brand new cuff bracelets are handmade with your choice of beach sand set into two round bezels and layered to a glass-like, slightly domed finish. They’re silver and gold plated, available in hammered, brushed silver or hammered, brushed gold and are “one size fits most”. (Retail price: $48).
Dune Jewelry is a keepsake, collectible jewelry line made with sterling silver and beach sand from your most cherished coastal memories. They are modern, beautiful accessories with meaning… accessories that hold a memory! Carry a piece of sun, sand and surf wherever you go with Dune Jewelry’s unique collection. “People have such a strong emotional attachment to specific beaches, and jewelry is a great way to keep those memories alive and with you at all times,” says Holly Daniels Christensen, Owner and Creator of Dune Jewelry.
With thousands of sands in their Sandbank™ spanning all 7 continents, Dune Jewelry custom makes all orders out of their Boston, Massachusetts studio. Their Sandbank™ count keeps growing, almost weekly, thanks to customers sending in their own sand for their very own one-of-a-kind pieces. The Sandartists™ only need a tiny bit (soda cap full) for most designs.
There are two different patent-pending processes that are involved in creating Dune Jewelry. The first process requires cleansing, layering and polishing the sand and resin to form a domed, glass-like finish. The second process calls for the designer’s to hand sand the piece to “open up” the grains of sand inlaid into sterling silver for a flat, matte finish.
This is a very detailed, intricate process, which makes Dune Jewelry’s collection extremely unique. All items have a lifetime warranty, come with care instructions and literature that indicates the source of the sand.
“Live for the moment, then take it with you™” is the guiding principle of this Boston based jewelry manufacturer. This has been a dream in the making for self-taught jewelry designer Christensen. Raised on Cape Cod, her summers were spent mostly on Marconi Beach in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. “To be able to combine my fond memories and love I have for the beach, and generate rare, beach inspired accessories with my dedicated and creative team is something I have always wanted to be able to do. We don’t just sell jewelry, we preserve cherished moments, we sell memories that people will keep with them for a lifetime,” says Christensen.
Dune’s Collection price ranges from $40-$380 and includes necklaces, earrings, bracelet, Sandbeads® that fit on all interchangeable bracelets, bangles, key chains, tie bars, wedding bands and more.
Recently Dune has also been working with sand from golf courses to create exceptional tournament gifts as well as baseball parks including Fenway Park in Boston, MA.
