Jaimie Shepherd’s story is the stuff day dreams are made of. Formerly living the corporate life as a sales rep in the wine & spirit industry, Jaimie and her mom, Sally Porter, now own one of the most adorable shops in Paia, Sophie Grace Maui…
Set in a plantation style home on Baldwin Avenue, Sophie Grace is the perfect place to spend an afternoon shopping for gifts or picking out semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls and vintage coral for your very own custom handmade jewelry.
I first discovered Sophie Grace at the Fashionista’s Market Maui event. I fell in love with the beautiful stones and unique designs, elegant with just the right amount of edge. Jamie’s advice for styling with jewelry is to not be afraid to mix unexpected elements and pieces together. A coordinated look is much more interesting than a perfectly matched set.
After moving to Maui, Jamie began working in public relations for Maggie Coulombe who started to carry some of Jamie’s handmade jewelry in her Lahaina boutique. With encouragement from her husband Jamie she opened a resort kiosk to sell her pieces.
Visit Sophie Grace at the Grand Wailea, Poolside or on Baldwin Avenue in Paia.
Sophie Grace is also having a pre order Christmas sale on their facebook page until October 31st. All purchases will ship by Thanksgiving.
The day I visited Sophie Grace, Jamie had the cutest big earrings on which will be part of their collaboration with RockaBella for the holidays. Stay tuned…
