From the La Garza Coast & Holiday Collections
These treasures are handcrafted in my seaside studio in St. George Bermuda.
Bermuda is a low-lying archipelago located in the mid- Atlantic, 640 miles off the eastern United States. Colonized 400 years ago, it is best known for making up the northern apex of the mysterious Bermuda Triangle.
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.
