Sandrine B. Seashell Necklace
"I thought of this piece for the upcoming exhibition because it is a snapshot of my brand's values and a reminiscence of my happy place during a recent summer vacation: the piece is made from fairmined gold with a seashell found on a beach in Florida. I joined the fairmined community this year and I took a getaway vacation in July 2021 for the first time since February 2020.
Throughout the pandemic I partook in conversations with over jewelers about sustainability and responsible sourcing of metals and gemstones. I joined the fairmined community not too long ago and this is the third piece that I made out of fairmined gold. I had an amazing time this summer in Florida. I picked up this seashell from the beach sand because it looks like a heart shape to me.
This piece represents a moment in time of happiness and I hope that the wearer will find pleasure in wearing it with the assurance that it is uniquely hers and the gold pendant is responsibly sourced."
