Artist and designer Leah Santos, who grew up on Maui, creates lightweight laser cut and carved wood jewelry that embodies Hawaiian motifs on high quality, locally sourced and imported wood. Each design has a significant story and tells a little more about the beauty found on Maui.
Utilizing natural materials and improving upon them by using modern technology to carve intricate designs that emulate the beauty seen in our Hawaiian environment, she creates unique wearable art for the modern market.
Leah describes her jewelry designs, “My goal with the all i see is Art woodshop was to create small authentic remembrances of island life/culture. I created artistic representations of significant Hawaiian themes that I became familiar with through my study of hula and the Hawaiian language.”
The wood jewelry is laser cut and carved out of locally sourced and imported woods such as: Koa, Mahogany, Bamboo, Curly Mango, Baltic Birch, Maple, Walnut, and Cherry.
