Flotsam & Co

Proudly located on O'ahu

Flotsam & Co. was created in 2012, and each piece of jewelry is handcrafted in Hawaii by New York Times featured artist Karen Sawicki. As a lifelong diver, Karen dives for all of the shells in Flotsam & Co. jewelry - many of them rare or found in excess of 100+ feet. 

Karen has a background in fine art and design and uses all of her fine art skills to bring a completely new line of jewelry that marries her love of the ocean with her passion for design. She spent years perfecting and experimenting with some of the jewelry techniques to showcase her sunrise shells. 

The 24kt gold electroplating technique is a signature item of the brand, as Karen was the first to develop this unparalleled way to set shells and stones in an organic setting. This technique, normally used with precious stones and gems, gives found objects a new life and highlights the beauty in these natural elements.

Just as "Flotsam" describes found items washed ashore, Flotsam & Co. incorporates found materials into its jewelry, giving new form and life to objects which may otherwise be considered debris and detritus.
