About

Former city girl disguised as a jewelry artisan in rural Hawaii...

I desperately needed a creative outlet as a child. Since I lacked drawing and painting skills, I became crafty. I dug holes in the backyard for clay so I could make little bowls and pots. I strung beads and made "stained glass" out of food coloring, toothpicks and Elmer's Glue. A chicken pot pie recipe in an old cookbook resulted in a four-hour experiment and a very late dinner for my family.

Today, my Kahili Creations are made from stones and metal. For inspiration, I look outside my windows. The beauty of nature is all around me, from the blue sky, azure waters, rainbows, black sand beaches and volcanoes of my island home. Even the air, fragrant with jasmine, ginger and plumeria, is magnificent. I see textures in the hardened lava, sea shells and leaves that will eventually translate into a piece of jewelry.

Many of the precious metal charms used in my jewelry are cast in the United States from designs and prototypes made by me. I make the prototypes using Precious Metal Clay (PMC) or using 3D software. I then hand-finish each casting piece before assembling them into jewelry.

Kahili Creations is honored to be part of the Etsy Wholesale marketplace. If you are a retailer interested in carrying my line, please contact me and I will send you a guest pass to view my wholesale offerings, which include designs not found on Etsy Retail.

Mahalo!
