My husband and I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii after falling in love with the beauty of the island on our honeymoon. For the past 2 decades we have lived, and continue to live in the middle of a Hawaiian rainforest surrounded by native Ohia trees, large Hawaiian Hapu'u tree ferns, wild orchids, mosses, and native wild life such as Pu'eo Hawaiian owls, I'o Hawaiian hawks, and other rare endemic birds.
We cleared our property ourselves by hand for months, and dozed just for our driveway and house pad in order to save as many trees as possible. We have hundreds of oxygen producing tall trees on our property.
We worked at various places and it wasn't until I came up with the original idea for hand rolled sushi candles made from beeswax sheets in 1996, that we were able to start our arts and crafts business from that one idea…
