One of the things I love about Instagram is getting the daily visual scoop from my favorite independent lines and artisans from Hawaii. I’ve been following Lisa Deniz of Hex by Fetu from day one and she’s amazing. This busy Haleiwa mama of two not only bakes lip smacking cupcakes but also creates unique jewelry pieces. Her work is tribal meets girly, topped off with a smidge of industrial and a whole lot of glam.
Onyx, rhinestone chevron and a little spike action appeals to the edgy urban chick who doesn’t want to forget where she came from, a rock in the middle of the Pacific.
Turquoise on an antique bronze chain with a rhinestone pave spike is the perfect statement necklace for a boho babe in her bikini and crochet. It screams organic with just a whisper of bling.
These white agate earrings are office and weekend appropriate. I love this pair for my friends who lean classic in their personal style. The perfect handmade accent for the well groomed wahine with shiny hair, dressed in Tory Burch and carrying a gorgeous structured bag.
The silver rhinestone necklace was a custom piece and is great on its own with a cute dress but I can also picture it wonderfully jumbled and mixed with other statement pieces, a white T and beat-up denim.
Lisa also makes wrap bracelets using dyed and painted silk cords and incorporates wonderful color combinations into many of her pieces. I couldn’t feature everything here so please check her out on Poshmark (@fetu) or Instagram (@hexbyfetu).
