Kaua'i is one of the most peaceful places you can find, and shopping at Peace of Kaua'i–a locally owned, design and crafted jewelry line–offers an opportunity to bring that peace home. One of the best things you can do while shopping on Kaua'i is to buy local, and Kaua`i resident Colleen Daly collects each shell and piece of sea glass herself on beautiful beaches and crafts them into unique wearable creations of all colors and sizes. She blends them often with precious stones, metals, crystals, wood and other earthen beads to create beautiful pieces (mostly earrings and necklaces.)
The earrings are super affordable, starting at around $12, and mostly staying under $50. The rare and prized sunrise shell earrings are just about the only exception, with pricetags around $100, but those are worth the investment. It’s no secret that there’s an abundance of shell jewelry on Kaua'i, but what is locally made is often sold at a high price, and the affordable stuff is often imported from China, the Philippines, and Indonesia. But POK jewelry is sourced and made right on Kaua`i, and on small islands with a huge import rate for food and goods, shopping local is a very important part of achieving a sustainable future.

You can place orders while on Kaua'i or from home. Not only are the designs at POK beautiful unique, and affordable, they truly allow you to take home a piece of Kaua`i. And once you go, you’re always going to want a piece of Hawaii’s most peaceful island with you.
