Beach Time

She kept checking the time-- counting the hours until her favorite beach getaway. Holly Daniels Christensen sets a pinch of sand gathered from your choice of one of thousands of picturesque world beaches in the bezel of this stainless steel watch. It's a uniquely tangible way to keep that sunny feeling close at hand as you keep time. Handmade in Massachusetts, each watch comes with a card that indicates the source of the sand.

In response to our customers' requests, we are happy to offer you the option to send in your own sand for a more personalized watch. If you choose this option, you will be sent a convenient mailer with instructions.

“Every victory, small or monumental, should be celebrated.”

Growing up on Cape Cod, and traveling to coasts across the country, Holly Daniels Christensen has become a beach connoisseur. Using the different textures and colors of the world's sands as her palette, she creates memorable jewelry that lets beach-goers prolong their vacations indefinitely. Her exquisite accessories are keepsakes more than mere decorations, and unique souvenirs for beach lovers of all ages.

We visited Holly in her Boston area studio and boy, did we admire her signature sands! Take a peek for yourself on our blog.

resin, sand, stainless steel

Stainless Steel is non-tarnishing, but if there is any debris or discoloring you can polish your watch with a silver polishing cloth then use a soft cloth or brush with soap and warm water to remove the polishing residue. If the "sandy" part of your watch gets scratched or foggy, buff with car or boat wax.
