I made a well-deserved exception for the buy local holiday challenge today because I just couldn’t help myself. Jewelry designer Tiffany Chou is a Maui girl who has made it in the big city, New York. Her nature inspired necklaces, earrings and bracelets are all made in New York and have attracted the attention of major fashion magazines and celebrities. Her pieces reflect her love for her island home and the ocean. The shark tooth earrings, sea horse bracelet, coral bangle and the Maui love necklace are welcome in my stocking anytime.
For the luxury lovers on your list…The unique koa iPhone & card case hand made in Hawaii by Martin & MacArthur’s craftsmen is a beautiful way to show off your tech. Na Hoku is the oldest and largest jewelry manufacturer in the State of Hawaii and their history is evident in this beautiful rose gold ring from the Hawaiian Heirloom collection.
There is no substitute for 100% Kona Coffee, period. It’s smooth and robust; I’d take it, home brewed, over Starbucks any day. ABC Stores and many grocery and drug stores Statewide carry the brand shown here, Mulvadi. Jean Watanabe Hee’s mochi and Hawaii desserts cookbooks are a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection, carried at Hawaii Costco locations or at Amazon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
