Eight years ago, Wings Hawaii, an all-woman run clothing and jewelry company, started as an art project at the University of Hawaii.
Now the Maui-based line sells their handmade, beach-inspired designs at stores all over Hawaii (Oahu, Kauai and Maui), the mainland (New York, California, Georgia and Washington) and online at wingshawaii.com.
I couldn’t resist this ring ($40) and pair of earrings ($50) I spotted at a Local Motion T-shirt store.
All of their jewelry is made from sterling silver, 14-karat gold fill, semi-precious stones and shells from local beaches. Prices range from $20 for a sterling silver ring to $1,800 for a sapphire necklace.
It may be six months before I’ll be able to pair these pieces with a sundress and sandals, but, until then, at least I can daydream about warm waters, surfing and white sand beaches.
