Pacific Teeth

"Triangles. In many cultures and arts, triangles have a multitude of meanings. For me, it represents strength in balance. In the culture I was raised in, it often refers to a shark tooth (niho manō).
Manō, a shark in Hawaiian waters, has been revered as both a symbol of fierceness and of family guidance. I find that to be a perfect explanation for the Pacific Islands. I remember the day my mom called, reporting that my friend was in the hospital in critical condition with one leg taken from a shark while surfing our home break. In contrast there were the beautiful moments, swimming beside them while both shark and man were symbiotically hunting for our evening meal. When a fifteen foot shark gracefully swam alongside me in a moment of peace, it reaffirmed that we all need this healthy fear - not the fear that cripples us, but rather the fear that motivates us to protect what we love." 3/7 - Chris Miyashiro

MATERIALS AND DURABILITY

This collection is handcrafted from 100% recycled 925 sterling silver and each piece is silver to the very core. There's no plating. Every detail, every notch and mark oxidized in a way that will help it holdup through bodies of water, wear, tear and time... We forge our pieces to help them last the decades and hopefully lifetimes.


With durability in mind, we source our pure recycled silver from a leading Belgium/German based company, where it is refined at 330ppt oxygen level – crucial to crafting a high quality product. Our silver is refined slightly above the 92.5% silver mark and each piece is actually 93% silver. We also use some methods that help make it slightly stronger than your traditional sterling and four times more corrosion resistant which has been certifiably tested.

These little goodies are then carefully packed away in an old-school matchbox that we crafted from recycled cardboard, with an organic cotton canvas bag, our signature silver polish cloth, n’ a little more...
