About Us

Our team spans generations, from the youthful energy of our 22-year-olds to the wisdom of those 70 and beyond. We are hands-on, devoted artisans, privately owned, living around the world, and unbound by the cold directives of venture capital firms or indifferent corporations.

Why do we do this?  The sea casts a spell on us. We’re in love with the blue. We want to save it.  We're united by our fascination with the sea and a heartfelt desire to protect it from the damage, injuries, and indifference it suffers in this modern world.

Inspired by the elegance of racing dolphins, the calmness of sea turtles, the tales of classic literature and Greek myths, we find ways to bring these experiences into the things of this world you also love.

Our imagination surfs along the furious chords of the sea itself.  But always we are drawn back to the realm where water meets land, that fertile creative space. In our collective are traditional fine craftsmen as well as experimental upcyclers dealing in plastic flotsam recycled into wearable pieces.  

And so, with every piece we create, we strive to honor and protect the marine environments that inspire us. We support research groups and sponsor local cleanups, using our work as a vessel for advocacy. We give back.

The sea, in all its strange glory, has profoundly shaped us, and we are dedicated to preserving its beauty and mystery before the tides of time and change sweep it away.

About us

The First Necklace

In 1970 Walter crafted a necklace using the teeth of a six foot shark he had caught, along with some electric wire, a red-hot paper clip, a Phillips screwdriver and a bit of solder.

This is a picture of it now. He's passed the old necklace down to his nephew.
