Everything Has A Story To Tell
The inspiration for Mauka Makaii’s design takes both the uncommon and everyday aspects of the human relationship with nature and translates them into timeless pieces complementing any attire.
We’re a 21st century company, we believe true craftsmanship has been lost in the age of mass-production, which has led to all things being made with less care and attention. As a company that wants to live in a better tomorrow, we aim to help our customers connect with their heirloom jewels and reintroduce a sense of awe and wonder into life.
I created Mauka & Makaii because I was frustrated with every pair of earrings that I tried. All I wanted were simple earrings that wouldn’t cause a painful reaction, but I couldn’t find anything that worked.
I had given up wearing earrings years before because every pair (even “nickel-free” and “hypoallergenic” earrings) almost instantaneously caused soreness, swelling, and bleeding.
I tried so many pairs of earrings with the same results every time: pain and frustration. In my search for safe earrings, I discovered that I didn’t just have sensitive ears, I had actually developed a contact allergy to metal from years of wearing earrings made with reactive materials.
Armed with the problem, I started buying silver jewellery and I knew that I had found my solution, fine metal which I have been searching for but as silver costs much I wanted to be affordable with the quality made till heirlooms with which I feel my presence in the public.
Although I didn’t set out to start a business, I knew that I had discovered something that could change how people wore jewelry. I decided that if no one else was going to create a model which is suitable for artisans, designers and individuals, then I would have to be the one to do it. And from there, Mauka Makaii was born.
