"She By The Sea"

She by the sea was born on the beaches of Hawaii. As a starving college student in love with Island life, I started making jewelry that reflected my fascination with the ocean while attending nursing school at the University of Hawaii. Starfish earrings and puka shell bangles helped me complete my education, and gave me a way to share my passion for the natural beauty of the sea with others. I am now a nurse practitioner living in Santa Cruz, California, and still find satisfaction in handcrafting beautiful jewelry that evokes the sun, sand and surf, no matter where it is worn.
