Pura vida, literally meaning pure life, is a characteristic Costa Rican phrase, that means “full of life", “this is living!”, “going great”, or “real living”. The philosophy is very much alike the one from “The Lion King” hakuna matata. Pura vida is about small things that matter, about better living, caring about yourself, your mind and body. It’s not just an expression – it’s a choice. It is about present. It’s is about being. Here and now.
The seashell, which was used in creating this necklace, was found in the old days at the Manuel Antonio Beach, Costa Rica. That small gift from the mother nature still smells of salt water, warm summer wind and the thirst for life.
