Crystals Around the World ~

Welcome to August's Inspiration!

Starting as underwater volcanoes which then surfaced over thousands and thousands of years, Costa Rica has evolved into one of the largest, lush ecosystems in the world. Imagine yourself rappelling down a waterfall, relaxing in hot springs, hiking along the rolling fog of the cloud forest or exploring the pink sandy beaches of the Guanacaste coastline. These adventures paired with rich tropical flora and fauna and soft sunsets over crystal blue water were the incredible inspiration for these pieces – and my version of ‘paradise’.

Our  sea shell components are cast from actual shells bringing nature's genuine beauty to these designs! (See all of our sea-themed parts in our Oceans Collection.) This palette and the summer heat of August has us dreaming of sand, beaches, little drink umbrellas...
