I live 12 miles from the beautiful Pacific Ocean. We raised our kids on Zuma Beach in Malibu during long, sunny days of sand, and surf, and family friends that were there then, and are here now. It is so much a part of me, that I can't imagine life without it, that mere 12 miles from here. It is a gift to live where we live and I do my best not to take it for granted - although I sometimes do. Thankfully it waits for me and welcomes me back with open arms and sea air.
Lani Makana - which means "gifts from heaven" in Hawaiian - is Katie Makaiwi’s celebration of the little gifts in everyday life - like the ocean, or the mountains, or birdsong on a perfectly cool, breezy morning. Influenced by Katie's time spent in Hawaii and her love of creating, Lani Makana specializes in jewelry, accessories, and gifts inspired by the sea. Katie's handcrafted jewelry features natural gemstones, sterling silver findings, genuine freshwater pearls, beach found sea glass and sea pottery, and other ocean finds. We love that every unique piece is a nod to the freshness of the salt air and the natural treasures of the ocean.
For our September collection, we chose the Lani Makana Dainty Gemstone Necklace with one of four raw stones: Amazonite which reminds me of the palest, most watery turquoise, Labradorite - reminiscent of beach stones, and Peach or White Moonstone, both of which conjure up the inside of a seashell made smooth by the surf. No two stones are exactly alike. (MSRP $28.00)
But there's so much more to this lovely collection. We particularly like the Simple Pearl Pendant Necklace, the Long Freshwater Pearl Statement Earrings, and Lani Makana's modern take on the old-school Puka Shell Necklace.
