Aloha! My name is Angelica. I am the Owner and Jewelry Designer of LAJ.
I love designing and handcrafting jewelry for women like YOU who are unique, authentic, one of a kind, and so beautiful…inside and out.
“There is nothing more enriching than creating jewelry that highlights your unique nature, your beauty, strength, integrity, and authenticity. You are uniquely made so your jewelry should be too!
All the jewelry you see in the LAJ shop is designed and handcrafted solely by me with love, precision, and detail in my home studio on the Big Island of Hawaii. Using a series of proprietary techniques such metalsmithing, wire wrapping, cold fusing, hammering, and more. I have designed delicate, feminine, collectible jewelry that women will love to wear and cherish for a lifetime.”
From a young age, I always had a deep passion for art and creativity. Whether it was painting, singing, or dancing.... I often found myself lost in the wonderful world of my creative imagination. I was born and raised off the west coast of Florida and lived there for 23 years. I now reside on the Big island of Hawaii. My island roots run deep and you can expect to see them a great deal in my jewelry designs. My ancestors actually originate from Spain, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. I come from a long line of artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and trailblazers. My journey into jewelry design began in 2010. What started out as simply a fun way to make jewelry for friends and family out of my findings of shells, sea-glass, and gemstones; became a full time career that I am so passionate about! I’ve known from the start that my job is meant for more than just designing beautiful jewelry… I work hard to design and create jewelry that celebrates and highlights your unique beauty and will inspire you to walk boldly in your individuality.
