HONOLULU (HI Now) - Established in 2013, Lahaʻole Designs (meaning rare, choice, unique) started when Tanya Uyehara was on maternity leave with her fourth child. Among the vast sea of talented jewelry makers and designers, Tanya wanted to stand out by forging pieces that were unique, meaningful, and highlighted Native Hawaiian culture. Drawing inspiration from native Hawaiian flowers as a means to share stories passed down through oral history, their pieces are made to share native Hawaiian culture with others, cultivating an appreciation and awareness of the beauty of Hawaiʻi.
