How our BirthElements Collection came to be

Spotlight on June's BirthElement: The Sand Dollar BirthElements are an enchanting alternative to birth stones, steeped with meaning and potent symbolism.  I've always loved gemstones, I'm not gonna lie.

And they keep the land from eroding while they're at it. And they always seem so happy doing it, there is just an energy about them. ...
