Summer is fully upon us, and it wouldn’t be a summer of relaxed style without beach jewelry. Taking a cue from the intricately detailed handcrafted native jewelry of Southeast Asia, I sought to balance natural colours and materials with a sleeker, slightly more streamlined silhouette than your usual beach fare. Whether worn with a white dress at a beach resort or a bikini at the poolside, Kailena will add that touch of summer to your wardrobe. And there’s Kaimana, a simpler, more casual style for the men.

While the inspiration is Southeast Asian, the names are Hawaiian-influenced, a language well-suited to conveying the beauty and fluidity of the sea.
