Take Lake Champlain home with you or give it as unique holiday gift! Local artisan David Epstein handcrafts each piece of beachstone jewelry from sterling silver and Iberville shale collected from the shores of Lake Champlain. Iberville shale is dark gray and characterized by numerous white stripes. The high pressure and heat needed to make these beautiful stripes is also what formed the mountains surrounding Lake Champlain. Epstein carefully designs, hand-polishes, and custom forms each piece of beachstone into a unique and beautiful piece of jewelry–all right in Hinesburg!
“I have lived in Vermont for many years and have always loved the fact that we have Lake Champlain so readily available to us,” shared Epstein. “My family has had many wonderful experiences while enjoying the lake. In my small way, helping to preserve and protect this natural resource seemed so worthwhile, so partnering with LCI felt like a good thing to do.”
Lake Champlain International receives a $30 donation from Epstein for every beachstone jewelry item sold through the Lake Champlain International online store at www.mychamplain.net/catalog/jewelry.
