AMERICAN  HANDCRADFTED:  Each jewelry design in our collection is American handcrafted by several talented artisans in our Kill Devil Hills studio, located on the Outer Banks isalnds of North Carolina. "American Handcrafted" is an important label, especially now, with further implications than just the simple location of production. We provide jobs for local people right here in our community. We buy supplies and services here in our town, our region, our country. By doing this, we are able to support even more local & national businesses in turn. With your store carrying our work, the circle increases, like ripples in a pond!

Austin Design Jewelry originated in 1987 on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, in the small fishing village of Cape Hatteras, and today resides in historical Kill Devil Hills. The natural beauty and rich history of this area is the inspiration for our designs ~ into each piece we blend the colors, elements, and feel of the ocean.

Our hardest worker Customer service with a smile
 
We are a small company of women, working closely together, a family of sorts, complete with a lovable dog to brighten our days. This is a wonderful atmosphere in which to work, and the laughter and enjoyment we have is translated into the jewelry itself!  Apply for accesss to our wholesale web site to learn more about us.

Carrying American handcrafted products for your customers also provides benefits not found in work created in overseas factories:

Workmanship:  Our jewelry is made with highest quality elements by skilled artisans. No short cuts, no impersonal machines, no seconds. Each piece is created individually, one at a time, with a degree of pride not easily found in less expensive lines.

Unparalleled customer service: Call our office (M-F, 8am-5pm EST) and we will answer the phone! We realize that your success is our success, so no matter is too small or too large for our attention. Our knowledgeable staff will answer any questions, and help you in every way possible.

Jewelry creation, one piece at a time
.
ECO-FRIENDLY:  We not only incorporate recycled and responsible materials in our designs, we also seek to be low-impact in the packaging, production, and daily course of the jewelry creation.

Recycled glass Re-claimed sterling silver Glass beads
x
The glass we use in our designs, especially the jewelry of Sand Sea Sun, is primarily recycled glass. We collect bottles & stained glass remnants from local restaurants, bars, stained glass facilities and dump sites that normally would be sent to land fills, and turn the glass into an integral part of our designs. Truly, trash to treasure!

The sterling silver we use is entirely reclaimed. Using reclaimed metals is an extremely important, environmental step as it significantly reduces the demand for newly mined ore. A bonus of using reclaimed sterling silver is that while the silver is exactly the same as newly mined material (.925), modern processes and alloys actually make this product tarnish at a slower pace! Learn more about the reclaimed sterling silver & other materials in our wholesale web site.

Jewelry Packaging:  The earring cards and story cards are printed on recycled, acid-free paper with soy based inks. The paper is sourced regionally, and the printing is done right here in town. Simple details, true, but with more benefits than most realize. The acid free paper and the soy based inks have an added bonus of promoting less tarnish when in contact with silver!
Shipment Packaging:  We believe in recycling in every form, but one that is often missed is "direct recycling" or "process free recycling". Many of the shipping boxes and packing materials used in our jewelry deliveries to you have been used, and re-used, before. Beyond saving and re-using materials we receive from our own suppliers, we also actively source local businesses for the same. Styrofoam peanuts, especially, are incredibly resistant in landfills. We have arranged for several local stores to collect this material in the deliveries they receive, and then use them in our deliveries to you.

Toxin Free Zone:   First and most importantly, we use absolutely no acids or chemical washes in the production of our recycled glass. Like the ocean waves which produce the finish of natural sea glass, we use only water and beach sand. And in the studio, to deal with the day to day grunge, we make it a point to use only bio-degradable cleaners.
