At present, the world's ecosystems are rapidly depleting, leading to widespread famine and poverty. Now more than ever, we need to take action to combat this ever-growing problem. What has occurred in the past cannot be changed, but this does not mean we don't have the ability to positively affect what will happen in the future. By promoting conservation through therapeutic jewelry, each piece is not only a tool for restorative medicine, but for restoration in our world as well.

We believe in giving back to our planet and our communities. Our manufacturing practices focus on handmade and fair traded goods, as well as the use of quality sustainable materials.

Sea Vision Foundation. World-renown marine biology artist Christian Riese Lassen, a concerned environmentalist, founded Sea Vision in 1990. The Mission of this foundation is to protect and preserve the oceans, its sea life and ecosystems and to raise awareness for the preservation of the world’s environments. Raised in Hawaii on the island of Maui, Lassen is incredibly passionate about protecting the magnificence of the sea and its infinite diversity of expression.
“It is my hope that my artwork allows people to feel closer to nature. I want to communicate the beauty of unspoiled oceans and land and express my respect for the many creatures living in the sea environment. All of my inspiration for my marine life paintings come from direct experience. I have always lived and played in the ocean since a small child and it has been the biggest influence on my life. Because of my love of surfing, it has brought me to various parts of the world to experience and appreciate the fragile balance of many different marine environments. I have gained so much from the ocean and without my connection to it, I would have never found my true calling or become an international artist. I wanted to give back to the ocean that has given so much to me and so I started Sea Vision.” - Christian Riese Lassen
In 1998, the United Nations asked Mr. Lassen to create an above-and-below Marine painting "Sanctuary," for the United Nations commemorative stamp for ocean preservation. Christian was honored as the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for 1998's International Year of the Ocean, and as a featured speaker for them at major environmental events around the world.
