The Yalang A Lang Journey
Chelsea, the designer & owner of Yalang A Lang Jewels grew up travelling Australia. She fell in love with the natural beauties, in particular the oceans, the coastlines & mountains which she was lucky enough to explore, feel the sand beneath her toes, and run freely in the sunshine. Throughout many kilometres wandered came jars full of Chelsea and her families beach combing collections.
Bewildered by the thousands of shades, unique shapes, patterns & textures. Wondering how each gem came to be amongst the sand, although knowing that someone else had discarded it as trash. ‘Seaglass’ was the real gem. Where did it originate, what was its purpose, how long had it been amongst the seas? Questions that would never be answered…
Seaglass & recycled sterling silver became Chelsea’s favourite combination. With each piece being shaped by the ocean differently comes a unique challenge to every design.
Now the Yalang A Lang workshop has moved to a location with beaches surrounding, you’ll find a jar labelled with each beach Chelsea visits filled with ocean gems ready to be incorporated into the next design. The connection and memories one may hold to a beach is important therefore each item sold will have its location in which the seaglass was picked up.
Ideal as a gift; a special piece of jewellery for a local shoreline wonderer, a traveller’s memento or a shared holiday destination.
