BEHIND THE DESIGN
Our Quora collection is inspired by the beauty of destroyed shells which is often overlooked, yet it is an important part of our natural history and a great way to appreciate the beauty of the oceans. Destroyed shells are those that have been broken down over time, whether by marine species such as crabs or human activities such as pollution.
Although some may think the broken pieces of shells are nothing more than scraps, destroyed shells bring out a unique and rustic appeal that is quite beautiful. Seen in the coats of mollusks and clams, among other marine life, the pieces of broken shells can be used to create interesting patterns and textures.
The natural patina and delicate details of destroyed shells also have a mysterious and fascinating quality. The diversity of shapes, colors and textures that can be found in destroyed shells can only be appreciated when they are seen up close, which is why we chose to bring them alive into your day-to-day life to make you feel like Summer is a four season wonder. The one-of-a-kind imperfections of these pieces create a stunning layer of patterns which can turn a simple necklace or earring into a piece of art.
Quality comes before quantity
Destroyed shells are also found scattered along the shorelines of our coasts and the Caribbean. This debris serves as an important source of food for many creatures in the sea. The animals that feast on the broken pieces can be seen as a sign of vitality and abundance in the ocean, making them an essential part of our fragile ecosystems.
These unique pieces are not only a reminder of our past, but also a beautiful way to be reminded of the fragility and beauty of our oceans. Destroyed shells may seem ordinary, but in their own special way, each is unique and can serve as the perfect addition to any decor.
