We discovered Dune Jewelry on our very last day of market in 2015, while we were strolling the aisles looking for new treasures for Two Fish Gallery. Honestly, I was beyond exhausted, and not really focused on the task. As we walked along, I heard Michael (my husband) say "Jenn, come check this out!". I sighed....definitely ready to go home and exhausted from days of walking. I hobbled over to where he was standing, checking out some beautiful jewelry. It was Dune jewelry, made with sand mainly from beaches on the east coast, which is where they are located. What a brilliant idea! Jewelry made with tiny grains of sand from any beach in the world. Talk about the perfect souvenir! Needless to say, we placed an order, and in April once the snow melted, I headed over to Van's Beach to collect a small bag of sand. We sent it off to Dune Jewelry, and soon we had our first pieces of jewelry filled with sand from Van's Beach. We've now grown to include sand from Pyramid Point and Sleeping Bear Dunes, and are considering adding more.
Last winter we had the pleasure of working with Holly, owner and creator of Dune Jewelry, and are thrilled that she is sending Lauren this way for a trunk show at Two Fish Gallery this Friday, July 28th! To see Lauren's journey up north and all of her stops along the way, follow her Instagram Story @sharkbitestudios and then come say hello in person Friday from 1-4pm. She will be bringing with her many new Dune Jewelry designs and will be giving away a free pair of earrings with each purchase of $50 or more. See you Friday!
