From the La Garza Coast Collection
These rings are handcrafted in my seaside studio in Bermuda out of bio resin and our famous pink sand. They are done in a four step process and we take great care to make sure they come out just right.
Bermuda’s famous pink sand seems to illuminate entire beaches but on closer inspection, the sand is crushed white limestone, coral and shells, speckled with pink grains. These grains are the shells of single celled marine organisms called Foraminifera (or “Forams” for short). The red foraminifera species found in Bermuda, grows abundantly on the undersides of coral ledges. Tidal forces and waves wash the shells ashore that have broken off the nearby reef. Forams are not considered animals because they don’t divide into multiple cells; however, they are not classified as plants because they don’t photosynthesize like plants and algae. As a result, they are classified separately from both plants and animals in a group called protists.
