Artisans Alicia Hanson and Brad Johnson have opened a new artisan studio and retail store in Honomu located at the gateway to Akaka Falls, on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaii. Brad and Alicia live in Honomu and travel to tropical locations around the globe. All of their original jewelry designs are created using the lost wax casting method. Each design is created in wax and then cast in their studio. Visitors are welcome to tour the studio and learn first hand the process of lost wax casting and silversmithing. Classes and workshops are available.
"Our philosophy is actually quite simple. SilverBotanica jewelry should stir our connection to beautiful places around the world. This line of jewelry lets the person wear a little bit of paradise at all times, keeping the journey alive.” The SilverBotanica collection captures tropical flowers, brilliant color palettes and lush imagery, then weaves them into jewelry that reflects these global inspirations.
So this season, what accessories amplify one's personal style and bring paradise into our wardrobes? The list includes bold statement rings, sterling silver floral pendants, double wrap sakura bracelets with leather braided cords, long brightly colored silk tassel earrings and silver bangle bamboo bracelets. "Our SilverBotanica line is a sterling silver jewelry collection that evokes the pleasures of paradise" said Alicia Hanson, designer of SilverBotanica.
