Hello! I am a California native that was born and raised on the beautiful beaches of the Central Coast. Also having lived in Montana for seven years, I spent ample time exploring and playing all around the Big Sky state. Because of this, I draw my inspiration for my jewelry crafts from both the oceans and the mountains. My sea creations with glass and shells are all collected from beaches on the California coastline. My passion is searching for new, powerful, precious stones to wire wrap, and you can almost always find me wearing one of these in a necklace. I currently live on the walnut ranch on which I grew up, and love the feeling of open spaces in which to work on my hobbies and crafts. My partner, family, and friends are wonderfully supportive of my crafts, and have inspired me to dream, love, and create my most authentic work. Visit me on Instagram or Etsy at HulaBuddhaCrafts for more examples of my creations. Peace and love,
Kaeli Smith
