Daily Deal For July 27, 2011: Custom Beach Sand Jewelry

When you close your eyes and picture a beach, is it pristine and powdery white? Slightly rocky with salt-and-pepper grains? Coral through and through?

We all have our favorite beaches -- lakeside, oceanside and along the boulevard. Holly Daniels Christensen, dune Jewelry Designer Holly Daniels Christensen, who grew up on Cape Cod, has created a way to capture precious grains from your go-to beach and transform the sand into a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind accessory. She pairs sand, collected from more than 300 beaches around the world, with fine silver to create earrings, necklaces, bracelets and cufflinks. Her handmade pieces are simple but elegant, with the sand flanked by slim silver borders, hand-sanded to a modern matte finish.

You can choose sand from Holly’s collection, or send in your own that you’ve collected from a memorable beach. Holly’s pieces are the kind you’ll treasure and wear for a lifetime. Each time you catch a glimpse of the sandy gems, it will bring you back to that special place.
