About

 

OUR STORY

Two gals currently living in Kona and Santa Cruz with a passion for sun, salt (not just on our margaritas) and adventure.

Growing up together in Santa Cruz, CA, Keana Rees and Natalie Opperman always had a passion for unique jewelry. One day, without a clue on what to do, the two started piecing together shell bangles, necklaces and earrings on the floor of their living room in between college classes. Watching endless hours of online jewelry making tutorials and powering through trial and error became the only thing they wanted to do (you'd have a good laugh if you coulda been a fly on the wall for some of those moments). Sporting their handmade pieces around town, they started to realize that other people liked their jewelry too. They eventually started to think that maybe their fun little hobby could turn into something they could share with more people.

Eventually, the two decided to combine their love for photography, creativity and jewelry to create a brand that reflects them and inspires like-minded individuals around them. 

Currently, Keana makes all of the rings, bangles and earrings in Kona while Natalie makes all of the necklaces in Santa Cruz.

"Making jewelry and sharing it with others is simply our passion.. and the rest follows. Our goal is to share this special part of our lives and to somehow inspire others through our pieces."
