Nile’s auntie Sharon Leton was a leather worker in San Francisco when she vacationed to Kauai in 1976 and stayed for good. For the past thirty years, she has been combing the beaches with a pair of tweezers for the Puka, Ni’ihau, and Sunrise Shells that, when painstakingly strung with vintage Czech glass beads, pearls, leather, and treasures from around the world, transcend the art of exquisite OG auntie adornment. Each piece she makes is one of a kind, with shells that absorb and enhance the mana of their wearer.

The wearing of mismatched or one-drop earring highly encouraged.
