Last year, Peyton and I took an amazing camping trip about 2 hours north of the Twin Cities. It was a camping trip I’ll never forget. Partly because there was severe weather, including tornados, just 10 miles from our campsite and partly because we really enjoyed ourselves and explored the Otter Tail trail. We spent a whole day driving the trail and stopping in the little towns. We ate at the cutest ice cream shop, we even had huckleberry ice cream for the first time. We went to various beaches and walked the shorelines looking for driftwood. We just took our time exploring. Peyton still talks about that trip.
With the help of Dune Jewelry, I made a piece of jewelry that will keep those memories alive and close to Peyton’s heart. Dune Jewelry is an amazing company that takes sand from various destinations and incorporates it into stunning pieces of jewelry. Last year, I made a necklace to commemorate a trip I took with my grandmother to Hawaii. This year, I made a piece for Peyton so she can always remember our camping trip.
I chose to do the sunburst design for a few different reasons. The majority of our trip was filled with beautiful sunshine and it was that big bright sun that shined brightly after the storms had moved through. And a portion, 10% of sales from Dune’s Sunburst designs will be donated directly to SmileMass.org to bring more beach wheelchairs to our public beaches because Everyone Deserves a Beach Day™. So on top of bringing my family joy every time we look at the necklace, it will also help another family be able to enjoy the beaches too!
There are so many fabulous jewelry designs to choose from. From earrings to necklaces to cufflinks and more.
Dune Jewelry has sand from beaches all over the world! There is even the option of sending in sand of your own to be used in your one of a kind piece. Have some unity sand from your wedding you’d like to turn into a piece? Just order your jewelry on the Dune website and follow the directions to mail them the sand. They’ll turn it into a one of kind piece and mail the finished jewelry to you.
I’m in love with my necklace from Dune Jewelry, it’s a piece that will always hold a special meaning to my heart. If you are looking for a unique gift idea that will hold special meaning consider a piece from Dune Jewelry. They literally have sand from all over the world. One of my favorite things about Dune Jewelry is a portion of all proceeds is donated to various coastal preservation organizations.
