Sand . Sea . Sun™ & Austin Design™
are two distinctive American handcrafted jewelry lines. Sand . Sea . Sun™ is created from recycled glass similar to natural seaglass, and accented with sterling silver, sand etched glass beads, charms with nautical and sea life motifs, and bright crystals. Austin Design™ is a more contemporary line, incorporating, semi-precious stones, natural pearls, bohemian glass, and sterling silver. Austin Design Jewelry originated in 1987 on the Island of Cape Hatteras, a small fishing village on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and on the island of St. Thomas in the the U.S. Virgin Islands. Today, we have our studio in the foothills of the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. Our company is a group of artisans which create each and every piece by hand. We pride ourselves not only in our original designs but also in the quality and workmanship which goes into every piece. Our inspiration, of course, is our home island ~ into all the jewelry we blend the colors, elements and feel of the ocean.
