Over the holidays, Molly Avellar Jewelry and I debuted a collaboration of one-of-a-kind pieces that combine both of our unique interpretations of the seas that inspire us.
Molly, a beloved friend, fellow jewelry and HBJ stockist- originally approached me to collaborate. It's always been a dream of mine to work alongside a designer and friend I love, and the sentimentality of working both our oceanic collections together was really special.
For these pieces, Molly collected the quahog shells locally at Nauset beach on the South Shore. Molly put them through a polishing process that gives them their naturalistic shine. From there, Molly sent me the quahog shells and I adorned them with Ruthie B.'s signature barnacles.
You can see these limited edition, collaboration pieces at Molly's store Adorn in East Orleans, MA!
