We got a chance to talk with Brooke and got to find out more about this babe!
Ive always had an obsession with Hawaii. I would see pictures of white sand beaches and pristine blue water. I knew at a young age that Hawaii was the promise land
I was around 6 years old when I decided that I needed to move out of Utah and into the sun. Living here is so inspiring and refreshing. I truly feel like I’ve won the lottery.
How do you make the jewelry?
All of jewelry contains: shells, coral, sea glass and seaweed that I personally picked from Maui’s shoreline.
I would like to think of myself as a hunter and not a conchologists. The coral and shells texture influences my designs. I try and highlight the natural beauty and quality of the beach findings. While putting the pieces together I try and focus on a wide audience. I want to incorporate beach with a modern style.
Get inspiration from? My inspiration comes from the textures and patterns found on the shells and coral. The laid back fashion style found on Maui is a big factor. I feel inspired by my friends who are often in my photo shoots.
I read you donate part of your profit to a non-profit tell me more….
When I am shell hunting on the beach I notice a mass amount of garbage. The oceans natural resources are plummeting. I want to help keep the oceans clean. I always try and pick up trash off the beaches. I also wanted to donate some of my profit to companies that play a huge part in protecting our oceans. ocean conservancy is a wonderful non profit group who focus on massive ocean clean ups world wide. Another great group is The Hawaii Wild Life Fund. They are a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Hawaii’s native wildlife. They conduct whale research and educate the public in an effort to save vulnerable species of whales from extinction. 40% of Marine Life Sea urchin and Fish bone Necklace and Seafaring Blue Debris and Coarse Coral Triangle small studs go to these groups.
I see a lot of gold and brass with a splash of color. Shorter necklaces and stud earrings.
