Ilihia's Shop Policies

Aloha! (hello) I was born and raised in the State of Hawaii. I am of part native Hawai’ian ancestry, and am a true Keiki o ka ‘aina (child of the land). My name means stricken with awe in Hawaiian and is pronounced (ee-lee-HEE ah). From an early age, I was taught the importance of the spirit of mana’o’io (respect for nature). As an adult I have combined my love for photography, jewelry making and nature with my equal desire to preserve and share the beauty of Hawaii. Initially, photography and jewelry making was a hobby. Friends encouraged me to share my art with others, and Ilihia Photography was born in 2006. Since then, I have had commissions for my photography and Jewelry from the America’s (United States, Brasil and Canada) Asia, and Europe and works from my expanding portfolio have been featured on web sites, printed publications and in some local galleries and stores. I do not have any formal training in photography or art. I simply keep my eyes and soul open to the possibilities in nature and shoot or create what feels right. I frame my shots and create my jewelry to present my view of nature to the world based on my intuition. My aim is to illustrate the profound love and respect that I have for our world around us. I believe that there is Mana (energy) in everything (land, ocean, plants, animals and people) and that this energy unites us all.

Additional Policies and FAQs
Please note that many of the components of the jewelry that I make contain natural sea shells. While I take every effort to use the highest qulity shells, some of them do have some imperfections and no two are identical. Also, be aware that my jewelry contains small parts and is not intended to be used by children under the age of 16.
