What is most meaningful to you?
“The things that are important to me are truth and authentic connection - being around people that lift you up.”
Edie: When I was six my father moved us from Oahu (where I was born in Honolulu) to the Big Island where my dad's family was from. My mother's family was from Maui.
I remember the volcano erupting and my Dad saying 'Let's get in the car.’ As we get in the car I remember thinking, “Are we supposed to go there?” Everybody is driving to the volcano and you can see the lava sparring. Just as a kid standing there and watching this thing happening.
And now here we are today with Moanalua. The largest active volcano in the world. Is starting to erupt again. And it brings back. These childhood memories of. Experiencing the goddess of fire, Madame Pele.
Tell us about your individual style: I don't know my style comes from. I am really influenced by Japanese sensibilities and the concept of Wabi Sabi where things are not perfect. I don't like perfect things — I like things to have an asymmetry to them.
“The things that are important to me are truth and authentic connection–being around people that lift you up.”
We started Silent Opus to create more soulful connections because we believe the jewelry we wear is much more than an accessory. It’s a vessel to communicate what’s most meaningful to us — beyond words.
