The Dune Jewelry Brand Story

Our small business celebrates your memories by capturing them in tangible reminders that will last a lifetime. We handcraft jewelry and accessories using sand & earth elements from thousands of iconic locations around the globe. We love a life well-traveled and encourage wanderlust in each and every one of you. The destinations in our Sandbank reach far and wide - from childhood beach homes to golf courses, hiking trails, vacation spots, and more.

My journey began in 2007, when the inspiration for Dune Jewelry took shape at my kitchen table. I began capturing beach memories in the form of unique, sand filled jewelry designs that I made for family & friends. Inspiration became a passion, and my passion became a business. Since launching Dune Jewelry in 2010, we have grown from a one-woman, kitchen table business to a diverse jewelry manufacturing company with thousands of the coolest customers around the world.

Our entire business is about capturing cherished memories and encouraging wanderlust by personalizing demi-fine, experiential jewelry with sand & earth elements from thousands of locations around the world. The destinations in our Sandbank reach far and wide. They all have a special meaning attached to them such as sand from a childhood beach house, an exciting life milestone, the destination of a family reunion, your favorite vacation spot or maybe somewhere you hope to visit someday.

We receive incredible “sand” stories from our community members every day that describe their sentimental attachment to specific locales, and the memories that they have made throughout their lifetime. Every story leads to our Sandbank and we’re thankful to be able to create tangible reminders of these stories that our customers can hold on to forever.

We have a very talented team of Sand Artists and packaging specialists here in our Boston studio who carefully handcraft every design with the utmost care. For our team, Dune is more than a job – it’s their contribution to your journey and they love to celebrate each moment right alongside you.

Featured Interview with Jack Milner

November 21, 2022

I am a communication coach who provides organisations with the tools to influence, persuade, and engage—whether through storytelling, presenting, or communicating within teams.

A few years ago, I got in touch with Cisco Webex with suggestions on how they could improve their software. In time, I ended up working with Webex on a regular basis, and this collaboration, in turn, led me to design virtual training programmes for some of the firm’s biggest clients.

My masterclasses help organisations take dry, often technical information and render it clear, memorable, and engaging. I help clients like Cigna US, Samsung, Google, Cisco, Microsoft, GVC, Ofsted, McCann, Adam&Eve DDB, Virgin Media, Commerzbank, BBC, National Theatre, and Channel 4.

I have been lucky enough to coach the world’s best-selling professional speakers. According to London Speakers Bureau, the largest speaking agency in the world outside the United States, I coached their three best-selling speakers in Europe in 2018 and 2019; and I coached Red Whale, the winning team for Webinars That Rock 2019, essentially the Oscars of webinars. The award was for best webinar in the world, as judged by the event platform, ON24.

Away from virtual land, I also work as a comedy playwright. My plays, including “Octopus Soup” (co-written with Mark Stevenson) and “The Mummy” have completed number-one tours nationally and internationally.

Featured Interview with Dave Carlin

Featured Interview with Dave Carlin

November 14, 2022

Dave’s story-
 
Before digital payments, David’s life was summed up with one word: business. People start businesses for a variety of reasons, but the most common factor is experience. With firsthand experience on the other side of the digital payments industry, David was aware of the struggles other business owners faced when it came to accepting payments. What he didn’t know what just how much residual income his sales agent (and now wife, Patricia) was making on his monthly sales volume. That’s exactly how David found himself on the front lines of the digital payments industry., David’s ingenuity and integrity — coupled with his art of the deal — make him the marketing and revenue-driving force behind their flagship product, Residual Payments.

Patricia’s story-
 
Patricia Carlin has been in the payments industry for more than 20 years. With a lengthy list of credentials that include being a co-founder of a highly successful payments organization, she is known by her colleagues as being one of the most sought-after experts in the payments sector. In fact, she was involved in setting up credit card processing for some of the first Internet merchant accounts in history.

As a payments visionary who knows how to stand at the forefront of innovation, she has earned millions of dollars in residual income and has amassed billions of dollars in career sales. Patricia crafted her career by representing some of the most cutting-edge businesses in the world. As a   highly sought-after payments consultant and business coach, helping companies navigate the sometimes complicated waters of business growth. Patricia shaped an entire field of practice with the introduction of the platinum standard of how to build a residual empire while maintaining integrity at every level. Patricia continues to leverage her expertise to deliver customized payment solutions to businesses globally as well as teach aspiring entrepreneurs how they can develop their own income stream in payments.
 

 
Together Story
As fast as they are able to scale businesses is about as quick as their love story happened. David and Patricia met at a time when neither of them were looking. Within 2 days of meeting until almost ten years later, their couple machine is stronger than ever. They moved in together after two weeks of meeting, Dave proposed within 2 months, and they married a year later. In business, they both bring a different flavor to their empire that creates nothing short of magic.
 
For their flagship product, Residual Payments, they took their combined 30-year working knowledge of entrepreneurship business building, and branding and built a one-of-a-kind platform that teaches both established and aspiring business owners from every walk of life how to make residual income from multiple products and services including merchant services.
 
Realizing how powerful their “two” brains together are, they have turned their lives into a power couple think tank—a work from anywhere incubator whereby they scale and launch their own businesses while helping other entrepreneurs launch theirs.
 

Patricia and David’s relationship has made them titans of their industry. “For the past 10 years, we have watched businesses succeed and fail as our own businesses continued to grow exponentially. We know what works and what doesn’t. We know how to take an idea or a service and catapult it into an instant success. Either firsthand or through our clients, we have seen what the proper marketing, advertising, placement, and hustle can accomplish. We have built platform after platform for our businesses and have opened to their virtual doors to thousands of people who leverage their services.
 
Our flagship product under Carlin Global is Residual Payments- that’s what Carlin Global built from the ground up and created a massive training program teaching people about a business they have been around their entire lives - a business that they have used every day to buy products and services - and we teach business owners and entrepreneurs how to earn a very real income from this service. That’s something we built without any prior experience. The Carlin Global platform is essentially an extension of two humans who act like a living and breathing CRM or incubator to help people, partners and businesses scale
