After working in the Boston real estate market for 10 years, Holly Daniels Christensen, a self-taught jewelry designer decided to celebrate her 35th birthday in an interesting way... by realizing her dreams of becoming an entrepreneur and launching Dune Jewelry on September 28th, 2010.
Originally from Cape Cod, Holly spent her summers after high school learning to surf at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet and although her surfing skills never did amount to much, those days of skipping work at the bagel shop and heading to the beach will always be cherished. Holly began making beach sand jewelry for friends and family in 2007 with her close, childhood friend Kellie Quinn. Soon it became apparent that nearly everyone she knew had a special memory or exciting adventure that took place on the coast of New England, the shores of Italy, the beaches of California, the Sahara Desert or as Rupert Holmes would sing…”in the dunes of the Cape”.
Dune Jewelry has been featured in a number of publications including Coastal Living, Cape Cod Life, JCK Magazine, The L.A. Times, as well as The Huffington Post, and Boston STUFF Magazine.
Holly hopes that all the wonderful people who have helped Dune grow will keep spreading the word and making new coastal memories to be cherished and celebrated by Dune Jewelry.
