Get to Know

I have been crafting and selling various items for over 20 years now, but my latest craft obsessions are ribbon leis and bead and crystal jewelry.
I like to make ribbon leis because they are given as a gift to show love and respect on special occasions in Hawaii. It is a beautiful way to spread the spirit of Aloha, and I would like to make it accessible to people around the world. I also like the fact that ribbon leis can be shipped without worry and will also be a long lasting reminder of the event and the caring shown by the giver.
I make jewelry just for the pure fun of it, and, of course, to wear myself. I tend to make simple, elegant earrings but also make cute necklaces and whimsical charm bracelets. I like to keep things affordable so everyone can enjoy a little "bling" in their lives.
I live in Hawaii with my husband, daughter, son and dog. I also like to read and travel.
Aloha! Gail
