Off the Chain
You know all too well it’s a fine line between fashion diva and disaster. Strike that delicate balance with necklaces by Abby Eaton.
The mother of three began creating her jewelry to sell alongside cookies as fundraisers for her teenaged daughters’ athletic events. Now she uses found materials for her elegant pieces.
Tiny, colorful feathers shed by a neighbor’s exotic pet birds, shells, and sea urchin spines are dangled from dainty, gold-filled or sterling silver chains. And forget clunky clasps, Eaton handcrafts swooping little hooks to finish each off.
Even her bolder looks carry an airy elegance. Eaton hand carves koa veneer from her brother, a koa supplier for custom guitar makers, into feather shapes for a statement necklace that won’t weigh you down. She also adds her light touch to hammered quartz and other minerals.
Just what you need to put your best look forward, without losing grace.
Abby Eaton jewelry is exclusively sold at Sand People, Kailua. 767 Kailua Rd., #767.
