Our collection pays homage to the profound symbiosis and artful dialogue between humanity and the sea, eternalized in shell.

Inspired by the ancient wisdom of California's coastal guardians, our shell jewelry embodies the confluence of the ocean's eternal rhythm and human expression. The Chiguan and Ohlone people, with Montara's shores as their home, used shells as conduits of connectivity, exchange, and artistic manifestation.
