Close to nature, simple, and creative. Luana Coonen was born and raised in Hawaii, and life was just that way on the island. When confronted with the stark contrast of the Bay Area of California to study Jewelry and Metalsmithing, her passion and connection with nature and organic growth only became more apparent. This love for nature and its tiny wonders help fuel Luana’s desire to minimize her impact to earth and use found objects and renewable materials in her designs. All of the jewelry is handmade by Luana and her assistants in Sebastopol, California using socially responsible techniques and materials.
