New Pendants and Bracelets

The sea has been particularly inviting as of late, and it’s no wonder because we have some friends visiting. The long-anticipated shopping trip to Bangkok is just a few days away! For now, I’m still working and have some beautiful new creations to show you. We sell these as fast as we can make them, so if you see something you like, email Dawn

These one-of-a-kind pendants are sterling silver with mammoth ivory on surgical cable with e-bu Robbin's polymer clay beads.  Each one is a little different but they all retail for $375.

Sterling silver and mammoth ivory cuffs. Very cool unisex design. Retail $420

This is a special piece.  The reticulated sterling silver pendant incorporates mammoth ivory suspended below an Asmat nose piece on a sewn leather cord.     retail $490

The Asmat people live in the largest mangrove swamp in the world- located on the west coast of Papua New Guinea.

One-of-a-kind Rings

We have been making more one-of-a-kinds pieces lately to allow our creative juices to flow freely. These amazing rings are still available. If you like one, you had better get in touch with us and let us know its sold. Contact our sales rep Dawn Stone by email or phone (808)965-0538.

This adjustable sterling silver band has been textured to accentuate the design of the ring.  Amber set in sterling on textured polymer clay.  e-bu Robbin started to add polymer clay for a hint of color that we can't get from the natural materials we typically use. She press objects like pieces of coral, tree bark, or anythig else to get natural looking elements that compliment the other materials

Here we set an operculum, part of a shell that e-bu Robbin enjoys collecting on the beaches we visit. The operculum is then placed on textured polymer clay and horn, set on an adjustable sterling silver ring.
Pictured here is polymer set in silver placed on polymer and cocnut shell.  The sterling silver ring is adjustable.

I love this ring.  The square shape is really easy to wear.  We first set a piece of fossilized Mammoth Ivory in sterling silver then placed it on two layers of textured polymer clay.  The sterling ring base is adjustable, something needed for one-of-a-kind-rings.

This layered ring is all about texture.  The smooth amber is set in sterling and mounted on polymer clay textured with coral, then set in a textured sterling silver ring.  Adjustable, of course.

Amazing Rings

Rings are a fabulous adornment that we love to make.  As in all of our jewelry, we consciously select materials to combine with silver that leave a small mark on th environment.  One of our faorite materials is amber.  We use chips leftove from the big amber jewelers that they consider waste.  We also use shell, bamboo, ebony and horn all in a manner that recyles or reclaims the material.  The combination of these natural materials with traditional silversmithing is stunning.  The functionl jewelry is wearable art.  Created by us, for you.

Hi, I am Robbin, an e-bu currently living in Bali on Cuchara, a 43-foot sailboat.  For the past 30 years I have sailed around the world with Warren and we have stopped at some amazing destinations, all the while designing jewelry and making art that reflects our love of the natural world.  We are lucky to work side by side, collaborating on each piece and drawing from one another's creativity.

Check back periodically to see new one-of-a-kind pieces, learn about our travels, and share the story of our lives.  Until then ,thank you for visiting.
