Koa Wood Jewelry

Aloha :)

I have a beautiful koa wood carved bracelet that I wear a lot. I'd love to find a ring to match. Does anyone know of a place that has wood jewelry?

Mahalo :)

Aloha,

JC, wander through Maui Hands at any of their locations. Also, hit Martin and MacArthur and Totally Hawaiian Gifts in Whaler's Village. They will all have some really nice wood items.......and don't forget a nice Koa Jewelry chest to store it all in, LOL!

The artists these places buy from are responsible and used properly harvested and seasoned Koa. A good tree can be worth thousands of dollars; the Baldwin family and others Upcountry have had problems for years with illegal tree cutting. Green wood can also warp or split after time/change of climate.

Thanks sw ~ I will be sure to check these stores. I'll also be checking on the BI, but in the event I don't find anything there, it's nice to know there are places on Maui to check as well.

I was fortunate enough to find a beautiful bracelet on the mainland. I went to a Hula Competition, similar to the Merrie Monarch Festival "only without the flowers" as someone told me. A vendor had these lovely bracelets and then he'd carve/burn your name onto the bracelet. I went back the next year to buy one for my friend as she'd been eyeing mine all year! Now I'm thinking a ring would look beautiful with the bracelet.

Jc...pardon me if I answered this before..but the most gorgeous collection of Koa art I have seen on any island is at the Wiapio Valley Artworks on the Big Island...sw nailed what's available on Maui. Hard to beat Martin and MacArthur...some day I WILL own that Koa bed! Do only shop with reputible shops...there is a lot of "fake" stuff out there! Just a note!

Having just returned from Maui I can tell you we found some great Koa wood pieces at Totally Hawaiian in Whalers Village in Lahaina. We also found a local carver at a fair on Front St under the huge banyan tree and he had some koa wood pieces that were well made
