Another gorgeous creation by NaiaWoodDesigns. Nicole lovingly created this beautiful one off 3 ring holder for my wife's set of rings. Custom made insert laser cuts holds her wedding, engagement, and anniversary bands displaying them surrounded by warm koa wood. An absolutely incredible piece that pictures can't begin to capture its true beauty. Nicole has beyond delivered every time I've had her make a piece. I only hope to come up with more ideas for her to create as each piece she produces is even more special then the last. Mahalo again and again, Nicole for your work. Your care and love put into each piece that you've made for my special lady friend truely captures the love I feel for her. I only hope others find you and our able to share in these special keepsakes you've created for us!

Wood Jewelry & Gifts Laser Cut and Handcrafted in Hawaii

I salvage Hawaiian Koa wood from wood shops here in Honolulu. Using this scrap wood, I laser cut jewelry, refrigerator magnets and ornaments with my own designs. I also do all the finishing and assembly. My goal is to use locally sourced materials and minimize waste as much as possible.

I'm an Architectural Designer turned Architectural Model Builder/wood worker. Using a laser cutter to cut out model parts, I realized there were so many possibilities with this medium. I love to design and build with wood, so I am excited to pursue these passions full time in a purely artistic way.

When you live on an island, the need to protect the environment around you is glaringly apparent. Working from home, I am able to spend less time driving/commuting and more time growing my own food and building furniture. I also have a baby boy who I get to spend more time with working from home.

Additional policies and FAQs

 While I have done my best to use sturdy materials, they can be broken if mishandled. I recommend storing these items in a box. The wood is a natural material, so fading is likely if left in direct sunlight. Clean with a dry rag. If necessary, use a wood-safe cleaner - NO ALCOHOL. The sterling silver will require occasional cleanings with a special cleaner to retain its gleam. Test in an inconspicuous place first to ensure the cleaner will not damage the metal.
