Maren's jewelry - gallery of past items

Hand-crafted in Hilo, Hawaii


I don't get around to taking pictures of all items, but some examples of what I sold, gave away or took apart again can be found on this page.
This page is vaguely chronologically backwards, i.e. the newest items at the top.
Please click on the pictures for more detailed ones.

Some of the items shown were or may still be available at Trudy's Island Arts in the Kona International Market, at Kona Beads and Jewelry in Kailua Kona or at Showcase Gallery in Kainaliu.

Amethyst Fan and weleweka seed necklace and bracelet set:

Necklace and bracelet with velvet seeds (aka weleweka or mgambo seeds), amethyst beads, a 13 piece fan for the necklace and 6mm round beads for the bracelet, accented with 4mm lilac AB Swarovski bicones. Unfortunately I'm currently unable to get more amethyst fans, so the ones I sold may be the last of them.
My first strung and crimped item. I use it every day.
Mine. Pick yourself a different pair of Picasso Jasper earrings. I'm keeping these (really). pendant for a friend - who gave me the shells, and quite a few more of them, i.e. this was part of a bartering deal. the pendant was given to me - so I had to come up with something to hang it from, but I still think it doesn't do the pendant justice. first attempt at earrings made with lampwork beads by Kalera Stratton. The earrings don't exist anymore.

Christmas presents 2007 (keeping these separate because one of the images is so wide):
