    Beautiful and Inspiring store
    Last week, I was walking around Tamarindo, looking for a place to buy quality jewelry for my sister. I asked locals what they recommended and they all agreed that EK Art Jewelry is the best in town. I decided to visit and was more than impressed about the quality, creative design and the attention. Laura and Guillermo were very nice and kind to me. The prices were fair and the jewelry was beautiful. My sister loved her gift and I loved spending my time there. Ended up buying gifts for the rest of my family as well.

    Best Vacation Find - Also Online when @Home
    This great little jewelry store became my favorite in Tamarindo years back, and a return visit in March showed me its still a cool shop with even more lovely designs. They sell a whole different quality level than you sometimes find in beachy tourist towns Now, when everyone is stuck at home and unable to travel, I was sniffing around the internet for the places I'd been. So glad to see they've got so much of their stuff online! You miss out on chatting in person with the charming owners. Oh well. But I wanted to give them a shout out from New York and hope to get back there again.

    Stunning Jewelry!!!
    I found this wonderful shop during our recent stay in Tamarindo. The jewelry is absolutely stunning! They set aside a ring for me so that I could return the next day. When I purchased the first ring, I spotted a 2nd that I just couldn't get out of my head! I returned again another day and was SO happy to find it was still there. LOVE both pieces and will definitely be contacting them again to purchase more. Best shop in Tamarindo BY FAR!!!

Laura and Guillermo are extraordinarily gifted artisans. Their creations are beautiful, elegant and powerful in their design. As individuals, they were warm, engaging and knowledgeable. I left with a stunning rose crystal pendent that “spoke” to me and new Costa Rican friends.

Love this store! So many beautiful unusual pieces and so well made. I bought earrings and a ring and they are my “go to” pieces at home and I take them on every trip because they go with everything. Will definitely visit again the next time I’m in Tamarindo!

We are frequent visitors to Costa Rica and every trip includes a visit to EK Art Jewelry in Tamarindo. We have been visiting the store for several years and have made numerous purchases, but our favorites are the spondylus pendants, bracelets, earrings, and rings. We have learned that spondylus is a rare type of oyster shell which is found on the beaches around Tamarindo which the owners use to produce brightly colored orange, purple and red jewelry in silver settings. Guillermo and Laura are very passionate about their jewelry which shows in every piece. We not only love their jewelry but love their animated personalities and love for nature. I wear my beautiful jewelry made by Guillermo and Laura every day to work and receive numerous compliments. A trip to Tamarindo is not complete without visiting EK Art and meeting Laura and Guillermo.

After stopping at numerous jewelry places in Tamarindo, I happened by EK Art Jewelry. I was looking for a charm for my bracelet - I get one from every country I travel to. No pun intended, but the owners could not have been more charming and helpful. Although they did not have any charms, they did have some lovely pendants that they hand crafted from stones that had a small sand dollar shape in them....they were a perfect representation of Costa Rica and its beautiful beaches...and were small enough to fit on my bracelet.

Many times, I will stop in a shop looking for a charm and the people in the store will just tell me they don't have any and be done with it. This was not the case at EK Art. The people in the store genuinely wanted to help and were very proud of their work. Should I go back to Tamarindo, I will definitely stop at the shop again.

This is the only shop I recommend to visit if you go Tamarindo Beach, I saw a lady wearing a gorgeous orange pendant with a bracelet matching and she gave me the directions of this wonderful shop, once there I met the beautiful artists who made exquisite jewelry from seashells and materials the found on the beach, their work is awesome, they show me kindly how they work with it is just amazing, now I got my set of orange oyster seashell and receive many compliments, I cant wait to get more of their stunning collections. I have to spread the voice! Don't miss it!

This is a really nice little shop with very friendly and patient owners: I was in there for ages!

There were so many lovely pieces to choose from, it took a while to narrow down my choices. I chose a silver collar and pendant and a very pretty pendant as a gift for my sister and we've both had lots of compliments on them.

The work is well-priced and if you're staying anywhere near Tamarindo and hoping to buy jewellery I'd recommend you make this shop your first stop.

Since I've made my first stop at Tamarindo I fell in love with this store! I found a beautiful seashell at Avellanas beach and the owner designed a unique ring for me with it. They're a kind couple that truly care about find what you're looking for and it's shows they really love what they do. So now every time I have to make a special gift, I ask it to them and they send it to my home.
Hope to visit that place again soon.

We recently visited Tamarindo, Costa Rica on vacation, prior to going I read about EK Art Jewelry on line so we sought it out, and thankful we did. The owner is very personable and sincere in his love of his art. Amazing jewelry, I bought three pieces and my friend bought 2! Absolutely love my green tourmaline ring. Since back in Canada have had so many compliments on this ring, everyone notices it, everyone admires it, it is totally unique as are the other pieces that I purchased. The service was great, very very low pressure, knowledgeable about the craft but the pieces sell them selves. Beautiful!

While traveling inTamarindo found this little gem shop walking by the main street of the town, it caught my eye immediately, so decide to take a closer view and walked in , I was so kindly attended by their owners-artists, felt in love with the passion of this creative couple has for design with seashells and fossils they find at the beach, so I couldn't resist to buy a beautiful ring, bracelet and necklace of such a truly unique souvenir of my trip to CR. And now, every time I wear them, got many compliments!! I will go for more soon for sure!! :)

This shop stands out among the many stores in Tamarindo. The artistic jewelry and displays of this establishment are delicious eye candy for anyone seeking a unique gift. The jewelry is fine crafted shells, stones, sea glass and painted tiles in sterling silver settings. Each piece is original and one of a kind. A true work of art and a definite stand out piece to own. Guillermo, one of the owners, was very helpful, charming, and courteous. I bought a beautiful avalone shell charm that hangs from a slide neck cuff. My girlfriend purchased two charms for her neck cuff, because she couldn't decide!
