Aloha! My family and I live in Maui, Hawaii. While living in Upcountry Maui, the experience transformed our lives. We were inspired to create products from wood that capture the essence of the Hawaiian culture and use locally sourced woods. My wife and I are originally from Oklahoma, which has also influenced many of the native designs in our jewelry.
We make most of our wallets and earrings with eucalyptus from the southeast slopes of Haleakala. The wood we harvested came from trees that were uprooted by Tropical Storm Flossie in 2013. We also repurpose many native woods from Oklahoma for our stud and dangle earrings.
Additionally, we design bracelets that are inspired by the island. All our designs are hand drawn, turned into 3D files, and printed in metals. We then assemble the bracelets, joining our metal clasp with leather bands, and then package them all in our studios.
The products are designed and manufactured by us, in Maui and Oklahoma.
We take pride in every single piece and hope you feel the Aloha captured in each one.
