About

La‘anei- bringing the sacred past into the modern day

I began playing around with jewelry making while studying art in undergraduate school many years ago. In early 2012, I decided to delve into the Hawaiian Arts, which focused a lot on adornments. I fell in love with the way my ancestors put love, light, and strength into amazingly intricate and painstaking bodily adornments. I got so entranced that I began to spend all my waking hours, while not working at my current job as a teacher at a Hawaiian charter school, creating wearable art. This quickly snowballed into the creation of La‘anei, which means "the sacred present."

I believe that jewelry should be made with sacred love, as ancient Hawaiians did, so that we are walking around with love as we wear our custom adornments. I thrive when I co-create special and significant pieces of wearable art for people, or for an event.

Payment
When creating custom or special orders, please convo me so that I can provide you with a custom order link. Please pay for pieces promptly so that I can begin your beautiful creations. Handmade pieces will take 1-3 weeks to process (I have many orders ahead of yours and appreciate your patience and understanding).
Shipping
I use flat-rate shipping and will provide a tracking number at no additional cost on DOMESTIC orders. INTERNATIONAL buyers please request tracking before purchasing and I will add additional cost to shipping. I DO NOT provide insurance. If you are purchasing a large order and would like it insured please ask me to add additional insurance to your shipping cost BEFORE purchasing. I am not responsible for items lost in the mail. Please allow 1-3 weeks for me to complete your order and begin your flat-rate shipment. If you need your order sooner please message me. Fees may apply on rushed orders.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because each order is custom made, I do not ordinarily accept refunds. If you have created your own pieces, I will not under any circumstances, return or refund your order. I will consider adjusting sizes on bangles at an additional cost to you. Keep in mind that when adjusting size I will have to go through the entire bangle-making process which uses many materials and takes just as long as the first time your piece was made. Ordering the right size the first time is CRUCIAL.
