Beach Dreamer : sea shell earrings
sailing jewelry


These earrings are made from puka shells which we find on the beach pretty regularly. They are the sea-worn edges of the mollusk called a "cone" that is found around the Caribbean as well as other areas. I put the puka shells (puka is the Hawaiian name for these shells, which means "hole") with fresh water pearls, polished coral, olivine gem stones, and some small glass beads and hung them from hand made sterling silver ear wires.

They are about 2 inches long from top to bottom.

No animals or habitats were harmed while collecting these items or creating this jewelry. We take the utmost precaution to preserve the areas we visit and leave nothing but footprints. We visit remote areas, typically uninhabited by humans, and gently gather found materials to make our jewelry materials.

Our sailing family has found these items and created this original piece of jewelry while on our travels aboard our 42 foot ketch sailboat. For more about our journey, please visit our web site at sailingserenity.com .
