Sending your Sand or Natural Element

We love receiving new sand or other natural elements, and are happy to create a custom piece of jewelry from your own personal experiences.  Each piece of jewelry uses just a pinch of sand or elements.  You know all that sand that sticks to your flip flops at the beach?  Yep, that’s enough to create a piece of Dune Jewelry!  Send about a teaspoon of sand for every piece you would like to order.

Sending a natural element other than sand?

Dried flower petals, crushed stones, and other materials can be incorporated as well, and we still use about a teaspoon for each piece. If you send a ½ cup or more, it will be added to our growing Sandbank™. If you have a question on how your natural element can be incorporated in our patented process, please feel free to email

When selecting your pieces, you will be prompted to select "send your own sand or element”. There, you will provide some basic information about the sand or element you are sending; then you’ll complete the Sand & Elements Submittal Form so we can pair your sent-in sand or elements with your online order. Below are some tips for processing your sand/elements. Please reach out with any questions to
