Kahili Creations, a new line of handmade jewelry, has announced an e-commerce site featuring its latest collection, as announced today by Marcia Asuncion Ricchiuti, the line’s creative director and founder.
To battle the high cost of living in Hawaii, former Web executive Marcia Asuncion Ricchiuti’s casual hobby of designing jewelry has grown into a business that contributes a sizeable portion to her household’s income, enabling her to work from home and be with her family full time. Recently, the handmade portal http://www.etsy.com profiled Ricchiuti and the success of Kahili Creations for their “Quit Your Day Job Series.”
Kahili Creations delicate line of nature-inspired jewelry offers women versatile, affordable pieces made from precious and semi-precious gemstones, pearls, as well as locally-sourced artisan materials. With over 200 styles available at launch, each piece in the Kahili Creations collection is handmade by Ricchiuti in her Hawaii Island home studio. In addition to the current collection, Kahili Creations plans to launch a bridal jewelry line later this year.
“The collection is inspired by the colors, sounds and smells that make up my daily life in Hawaii. My jewelry is designed to bring that sparkle and ‘island feel’ to your look where ever you may be.” commented designer Marcia Asuncion Ricchiuti. “With the launch of our e-commerce boutique, we are able to offer women around the world our new and unique collection of jewelry – with the convenience of shopping online.”
