Luana Coonen's Profile

About

Luana was born and raised in Hawaii, where she lived a simple and creative life, always close to nature. When moving to the Bay Area to pursue a degree in art, she quickly saw the dramatic contrast of life in a densely populated city, compared to the lush, unhurried pace of tropical Hawaii. Now realizing her strong affiliation with nature and organic growth patterns, she finds even the smallest flower or blade of grass more precious than ever. She expresses her deep and abiding love of nature’s tiniest wonders through her work as a jeweler to amplify the beauty of simple natural objects and bring attention to our emotions.
She enjoys traveling and can be found between California and Hawaii. She holds a BFA in Jewelry/Metal Arts from California College of the Arts and enjoys teaching, hiking, swimming, and creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Her work can be found throughout the United States.
