We have lived on the coast for much of our lives, and we also like to travel to distant shores from time to time. We spend some time beachcombing, and occasionally we find some rare and unique shells, sea glass, sea beans or other items that can be used to make a unique piece of jewelry. We have a nice collection of abalone from California beaches, and we have polished some beautiful clam shells from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. And of course we have some fine Wampum, the attractive polished purple clam shells used as currency by pre-Columbian North Americans. Check our coastal jewelry collection on the “Coastal Jewelry” tab in our online store.
