What started as a hobby, and gift-giving idea to family and friends for over a decade, quickly turned into a something more for designer Yunah Lee Joseph.
“The collection is named after my daughter, Kailee. In the Hawaiian language, ‘Kai’ means ocean, while ‘Lee’ derives from my family name,” says Yunah. “It is my daughter’s love of our beautiful, pristine ocean, and the life that inhabits it, that lends inspiration for each unique piece.”
One of the things I love most about the collection of earrings, pendants and bracelets is that each bead and stone has been carefully chosen to represent the striking blue and green tones of the ocean, while each shell has been hand-picked from the beautiful shores of Hawai`i.
One of the most popular pieces that can be found at Hale Manu is the Twist Oval Aqua Chalcedony.
I hope that on your next trip to Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, you discover a treasure to add to your own collection!
