Jewel of the Isle
You’re a rock star – literally.
You’ve got the four Cs down pat, can tell an iolite from a tanzanite from a stone’s throw away, and when your besties want to make sure they’re not getting gypped at the jewelry counter you’re a pearl’s best friend.
But lately, you’ve gotten too set in your ways. That semi-precious look has become semi-boring.
Mix it up with a hidden gem from CDSO jewelry.
Sculptor Chad Durgan (CD) and floral designer Steve Olivieri (SO) are New York natives who escaped the city for upcountry Maui. Inspired by the beauty of island nature, Durgan was soon turning the couple’s visions into unusual but elegant wearable art.
You’ll want to give it a whirl when you spot the swirling octopus designs set in copper cuffs and sterling silver rings. Discover a diamond in the rough with concrete cast in silver to echo the look of hardened lava. You’ll be captivated by the sudden turns of the road to Hana switchback pendant set with hand-stained wood, the edgy shark’s teeth bracelets in hammered brass, or blossom with the eternal lei necklace in graceful silver loops.
The designs are bold yet even the concrete is lightweight enough for everyday wearing.
It's just the collection you need to prove your precious mettle.
CDSO Designs is now sold in Maui Hands Gallery, 84 Hana Highway, Paia, or shop on CDSO Designs website.
