Sands of Spain
"The beach has been such an important part of my life since I was a kid. Some of my fondest memories are going to Cape Cod with my mom and friends. Now I get to create my own memories with my sons down at the beach. Every time I look at a piece of sand jewelry I´ve made, it reminds me of all the good times I´ve had at the beach. I hope people feel the same when they wear my jewelry."

Sam Schneider is the designer and founder of Sands Of Spain, a local jewelry company that thrives on turning people’s memories of the beach into something tangible.

Sam was inspired to create sand jewelry while living in Puerto Rico. She noticed that there were a lot of artisans using local materials, such as sea glass and pebbles, to make beautiful, sustainable creations. After a few unsuccessful attempts and a move to Madrid (Vaya, Vaya, Aquí no hay playa!) she gave up on the idea. It wasn´t until an unexpected change of events brought her to the Maresme coast. After spending many hours with the sand between her toes, she decided to give her jewelry making another attempt. From there, Sands Of Spain was born.

Sands Of Spain combines the neutral hues of sand with bright-colored bases. Pairing the sand with lively colors, like turquoises and yellows, brings to mind the full experience of being at the beach with the waves crashing and the sun shining down on you.
