About Seaside Treasure Hawaii
Growing up my mom was in the jewelry business and I saw how people really loved the jewelry after they purchased it. They were always happy. It’s that feeling of love, romance, or friendship that I associated with. Being born and raised in Hawaii I also feel a deep connection with the islands and culture so I wanted to start a company that shares the Aloha spirit within each and every piece. From the piece or collection itself to the packaging and brand. I want everyone who wears a SST piece to feel a connection to something they love. It doesn’t necessarily have to be Hawaii but I want to transcend the essence of beauty through our pieces.
Where did the name Seaside Treasure Hawaii come from?
I often get asked this question and it’s real simple. The treasure is you. Some people think no one is special. But I do. I believe that each and every person is special and unique and has something to offer. To this world, to their friends and their family. When I was at the beach one day, I saw so many people and thought each one of them is a treasure, unique with no same finger print. I wanted to find a way to bring that treasure out of them and what better way than wearing a timeless piece of jewelry to remind you of who you really are. So I said, that’s what I’ll call this company. Seaside Treasure, and Hawaii is where it all started.
