About the Designer
Hi, I’m Michelle, the designer and creator of XO Hanalei jewelry. I grew up in the tiny island town of Hanalei, Hawaii. I’ve always been passionate about art and design for as long as I can remember. Being an entrepreneur always came natural to me and I began making Jewelry when I was just 13 years old. I went off to major in Studio art at Westmont College in Santa Barbara CA, and then studied jewelry design abroad in Florence Italy. I was lucky enough to learn jewelry techniques from some of the best jewelers in Italy. There I was able to travel to some amazing and inspiring places, find myself and discover my passion. Jewelry is my passion, and I hope my jewelry not only makes you feel beautiful, but also inspires you. xo- Michelle
