The DNA of this emerging jewelry brand lies in the emotional power of two coffee bean shells that Renna and her mother found on Salt Creek Beach in Laguna when she was nine years old. Her mother kept them in her safe deposit box and began making golden shell jewelry from them throughout the 1990's in Southern California. RENNA is the continuation of this tradition, love and heritage reimagined for today's woman.
