We are Lenka and Jan, globetrotters from the Czech Republic. We create original sand jewellery with natural materials we have collected on our journeys.
We are collecting sand for years and till 2015 it was only for decorating purposes. In 2015, when we have been in Panamá, we have got the idea of sand jewellery. We were working with similar jewellery technique for years. In Isla Coiba came the idea of filling the jewellery with sand. The first jewellery we gave to our friends instead of souvenirs. And it was a success.
From August 2016 – August 2017 we took a gap year and travelled around the world. We have collected more than 150 kinds of sand, shells or dirt. We use only sand we have collected and from the places, we have visited.
After the year-long-round-the-world adventure, we decided to never go back to old jobs. We want to try to build our brand called Couple of Sand. This project could be the perfect combination of work and travel, we both dreamed about. You can follow our journey here:
