Our design development process has gotten so much more fun over the past few years.  Five years ago when Dune first launched, production was always the most difficult part of my job.  Everything was “trial and error” and it felt like I had to do things 10 times over to get it right.  I had absolutely no idea how to qualify the manufacturing process and even less knowledge about the actual process of choosing the correct metals, and fabrication processes required to produce quality jewelry.  Luckily, after working through some challenging situations and unreliable people, I’ve found an amazing team of business mentors and artisans here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts that help make life easier.

We have so many new creations coming your way over the next year.  I can’t wait to launch them so you can have the opportunity to add to your Dune collection. Our community always reacts so positively to new designs and I thank all of you for the incredible launch of our Natural Sandollar Collection in February.

In the pipeline for summer, we have an entire Silhouette Collection that will encompass all things beachy and travel related.  Currently we’re working on a pineapple design which symbolizes those intangible assets we appreciate in life: warmth, welcome, friendship and hospitality.  Someday when I own my beach house I plan on having a big pineapple door knocker.  I love the beachy vibe it provides.  We also have a Palm Tree Silhouette in the works.  Did you know that in some cultures the palm branch is a symbol of victory, triumph, peace and eternal life?  It is – making it a great reason to keep your eyes open for this new design coming soon.  Fill it with your favorite beach sand to make it just that much more special.

If you have any design ideas, I always love to listen:  holly@dunejewelry.com
