Maui Surf Gypsy Jewelry
Artist: Danyelle Sanchez
Surf Gypsy Jewelry was born on the beautiful island of Maui. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Lupus. I was bed ridden for the first year. I was looking for a creative outlet to keep my spirits up, and decided to try my hand at jewelry making as I have always loved any and all styles of jewelry. 10 years later, we are out of the bed and still going strong! This style of Hawaiian jewelry has been an obsession of mine since I moved back to the islands in 2008. While Tahitian Pearls remain my all time favorite, freshwater Edison Pearls are quickly carving out a spot in my heart. I allow each pearl to dictate the piece, which I then fabricate from 14k Gold Filled wire and findings. Personally, my jewelry is my armor. The more I feel, the better and safer I feel!
