"When I moved to Maui over 20 years ago I was inspired by the amazing colors of the sky, rainbows, ocean, and mountains. Especially during the sunrise and sunset when they are constantly changing. My goal is to take each handmade piece of jewelry and combine some of the beautiful color combinations that I have experienced at some moment in time on Maui. Each piece is unique and you will never see two that are exactly identical. Itís exciting for me to share my vision of Mauiís colorful beauty in my jewelry."
