Why carry our jewelry lines?

We design our jewelry with two goals in mind:  to create beautiful, quality jewelry with a unique style and impression. And to create jewelry that appeals and sells consistently to a wide range of discerning customers. Our jewelry lines offer all of this with the color, craftsmanship, style, and price point that your customers are looking for.

Also, our jewelry is entirely American handcrafted using recycled glass and sterling silver. This offers additional selling points for those customers interested in eco-friendly and responsible products. Click here to learn more about our environmentally conscious methods and materials.

Exclusivity Guarantee

We are proud of the unique nature and quality of our jewelry lines, and look for galleries and boutiques that reflect that same level of quality and artistic taste. To that end, we are rather selective when choosing the retailers carrying our line. 

Despite the extremely reasonable price point of our line ($5 to $35 wholesale), we avoid chain stores, souvenir shops, kiosks, and outlets of that nature.  We have found that the best venues for our work tend to be high end boutiques, hand crafted art galleries, and eclectic gift & jewelry stores. For that reason, when applying for a wholesale account, it is helpful if you provide us with as much information about your store, clientele, and other jewelry lines as possible.

To retain this level of quality, we strictly avoid over-saturation and offer a policy of exclusivity. This ensures that once your store is carrying our line, we will not sell to your close competitors. Generally, we avoid other stores within your shopping vicinity, and often, within your entire zip code.

Jewelry Description

We offer two distinct lines of jewelry:  Sand . Sea . Sun™  and Austin Design™. 

Sand .Sea . Sun™ is a sea glass style line, incorporating a beach oriented and waterside look.  The colors are bright, focusing primarily on ocean shades of blue and green, and there is a predominance of sand-etched, sea style glass.  The glass used in this jewelry is a combination of recycled glass and delicate beadwork.

Austin Design™ is our gallery line, combining both modern and classic styling with the highest quality elements:  European fine cut crystal, sterling silver beads, genuine semi-precious stones, natural freshwater pearls, and specialty glass beads.  The colors are deep and jewel like, ranging the entire rainbow.

 
American Handcrafted  &  Eco-Friendly

Each piece of our jewelry is American handcrafted in our Kill Devil Hills studio, located on the Outer Banks islands of North Carolina. Our designs are created by artisans, one piece at a time, with precise attention to style and detail.

In our jewelry designs we incorporate recycled glass and reclaimed sterling silver, making the designs not only beautiful but environmentally responsible as well.

Wholesale Packaging & Display

We strive to present our jewelry in a tasteful and efficient manner, to better assist in your sales.  All of the jewelry is delivered individually packaged and carded. 

Earrings are delivered on individual earring lip cards, perfect for any standard earring spinner or display.  The cards are a heavy natural, grainy recycled paper, with either the Sand. Sea. Sun ''sun'' logo or the Austin Design graphic ''flame'' logo.  On the back is printed a brief description of the work. 

Necklaces, bracelets, and anklets are delivered with informative story card booklets.  The cards give a description of our work and materials, the inspiration for our creations, and tips on how to care for the jewelry.  These add interest and identification with our lines, and your customers will appreciate the addition.

While we have the two separate lines, their style and packaging is designed to work very well together.  Having both in a jewelry case is visually complimentary.

Also, while we do identify each line by name and logo on the jewelry cards, we do not provide any actual contact information on the packaging.  We want your customers to return to you for further sales!

Sand . Sea . Sun™
&  Austin Design

are two distinctive American handcrafted jewelry lines. Sand . Sea . Sun™ is created from recycled glass similar to natural seaglass, and accented with sterling silver, sand etched glass beads, charms with nautical and sea life motifs, and bright crystals. Austin Design™ is a more contemporary line, incorporating, semi-precious stones, natural pearls, bohemian glass, and sterling silver. Austin Design Jewelry originated in 1987 on the Island of Cape Hatteras, a small fishing village on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and on the island of St. Thomas in the the U.S. Virgin Islands. Today, we have our studio in the Outer Banks village of Kill Devil Hills on the North Carolina coast. Our company is a group of artisans which create each and every piece by hand. We pride ourselves not only in our original designs but also in the quality and workmanship which goes into every piece. Our inspiration, of course, is our home island ~ into all the jewelry we blend the colors, elements and feel of the ocean.
