You love Dune Jewelry so we know you'll love the team behind the name. We're so excited to have you get to know us better. Introducing Dustin Bell...
Dustin Bell, but I occasionally will be called D, DBell, Dman, Dusty (to my family in Kansas), Dennis (to some of our customers)
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
This is a tough one, but I really got to give a shout out to anything by Billy Joel or Bare Naked Ladies, my voice sits nicely with them. However, I will ALWAYS try to do Rainbow Connection and invite everyone in the bar up front to sit on stage with me. Always makes for a sweet moment in the middle of a loud and raucous event.
What would you want as your superhero power?
Telekinesis, it’s kind of multiple superhero powers all in one.
Do you play an instrument?
I studied vocal performance in college and have played guitar since I was 14… music has been a really important part of my life for as long as I can remember.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Wars, 100% especially with the new films, they are just everything.
Hike or bike?
I was a mountain biker back home in Colorado, but there is no space for that out here in Boston. I still do love a good bike ride when I don’t fear getting hit by a car.
Kindle or paperback book?
When I’m home, paperback, hands down. When I’m traveling, though, my Kindle Paperwhite is always near.
What three words describe you?
Can I help?
Do you have pets?
My girlfriend and I are the proud parents of two white & orange fur-baby kitties as we call them. Peaches & Pinecone were adopted from Canton Cat Rescue and you can follow them on Instagram @PeachesAndPinecone … yes, I’m serious.
What's the one thing you can't live without?
Theatre, this is one of my educational backgrounds and I always tell people theater is my sanity.
What's your 'death row' meal?
My own recipe for mashed potatoes… I love them for the taste and the process it takes to make them.
What kind of music do you listen to while you’re working?
I try to keep it basic and sans too many lyrics I know, so a little classical, some movie soundtracks or when I’m doing creative work, I throw on my extensive musical theater collection.
What’s your favorite piece of Dune Jewelry and why?
I wear our Geometric Travel Tag almost every day inlaid with coal from the Titanic. Now, this is a bit of an insider secret, but yes, we have coal from the RMS Titanic and we’ll be releasing it later this year for ANY Dune piece as part of an expansion of our Sandbank™. I just love taking a bit of history with me anywhere I go.
What is your favorite beach sand? Have you ever been there? Why do you love it?
I’m fond of White Horse Beach in Plymouth, MA. My girlfriend’s family has been living on and going to that beach for 50+ years so it’s always full of the BEST memories.
