Summer is Here!
 
 
 
 
We debuted new logo colors and bead inspiration on June 21, the first day of summer! We dove deep for some sun-soaked inspiration and pulled some of our best nautical products. From spiny oyster, to coral, to shell, to freshwater and Tahitian pearls, there were myriad options for this shoot. We paired those things with a few stones like green kyanite to complete our motif of treasures.  
The inspo for our colors came directly from the materials themselves. The bright kicks of orange, purple, and fuchsia were chosen to match the intensity of coral and shell. The subtle blue represents the water and soft green represents plant life like algae. They come together to form a vibrant color story perfect for hot days in the sun. 

Nearly everything pictured is available for sale and can be seen in-person in our showroom!
