Unique koa wood earrings inspired by native Hawaiian species

Hawai`i is one of the most isolated archipelagos in the world. This has resulted in high rates of species endemism and unique ecosystems. The name Kipuka Kai stems from my love of the Hawaiian kipukas, and the ocean. A kipuka is a forested area where lava has flowed around, fragmenting it into smaller ‘land islands,’ while kai means ocean.

Most of my designs are stylized native, endemic or indigenous, Hawaiian species. All earrings are laser cut in Hilo on the island of Hawai`i with Koa wood and sterling silver findings. Acacia koa is an endemic tree species found across the Hawaiian Islands. The wood is prized for its beautiful glow, curl, and color variations, making each pair of earrings unique.
