Cayman Activity Guide is extremely conscious of our stewardship of the environment and marine environmental conservation in particular.
The Cayman Islands are very protective of their marine environment and the harvesting of black coral is illegal anywhere in the Cayman Islands. All arts and crafts galleries you see listed on this site, such as Mitzi's, imports their raw black coral from other countries, where it is harvested by professional deep divers at depths well below recreational dive limitations. The process of turing a piece of raw black coral into a beautifully polished piece of jewelry or any other form of art is extremely arduous, requiring dozens of hours of polishing, crafting and then even more polishing before it begins to resemble any form of art or craft. Caymanite is similar in the amount of painstaking hours required to turn what is essentially a jagged rock into a meticulously polished finely crafted piece of artwork. Mitzi is one of those truly gifted individuals who has the patience and dedication to work her miracles on both black coral and caymanite, in addition to dozens of other materials.
Pure Art features an extremely creative assortment of arts and crafts produced by many talented artists in the Cayman Islands. A showcase for local artists and crafts exhibits, Pure Arttdisplays one of the largest assortments of Caymanian arts and crafts in the Cayman Islands. Our forum members consistently rave about Pure Art naming it one of the Cayman Islands top "must see” galleries, offering the largest selection of very affordable locally crafted souvenirs, gifts and keepsakes from the Cayman Islands.
