“Partnering with this respected organization means so much to me," says Holly Daniels Christensen, Owner and Creator of Dune Jewelry. “As a child I spent a lot of time at Joslin visiting my father who passed away at a very young age from Type 1 Diabetes. I am honored to have the opportunity to contribute towards Joslin’s mission, and I’d like to dedicate Dune’s contribution in memory of my father who meant the world to me.”

With thousands of sands in their Sandbank™ spanning all 7 continents, Dune Jewelry custom makes all orders out of their Boston, Massachusetts studio. Dune’s Sandbank™ count keeps growing, almost weekly, thanks to customers sending in their own sand for their very own one-of-a-kind pieces. The Sandartists™ only need a tiny bit (soda cap full) for most designs.

“We don’t just sell jewelry, we preserve cherished moments, we sell memories that people will keep with them for a lifetime,” says Christensen.

The Dune Jewelry women and men collections include: necklaces, earrings, bracelets, Sandbeads® that fit on all interchangeable bracelets, bangles, key chains, tie bars, cufflinks wedding bands and much more. Prices range from $34-$380.

Dune Jewelry works with sand from golf courses to create exceptional golf tournament gifts, in addition to also working with baseball parks such as Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
