These days, everything is interactive and customizable. If you like to put your own personal touch on everything, and you love trendy jewelry – you are in luck. Sophie Grace Maui jewelry store in Paia has just opened up their brand new Bangle Bar, where you can be a jewelry designer for a day!
With the new Bangle Bar, you can select a silver or gold bangle, sized to your wrist, and pick your favorite charms and accessories. According to Jamie Shepherd, the store’s owner and jewelry designer, the most popular combination is shell, cast shark tooth and pearl, but the possibilities are endless! (The cast shark teeth are made by Maui’s own Rockabella Jewels and the pearls are from Pearl.Love.– also from Hawaii!) People are also welcome to bring in their own shells, which can be drilled for them. The bangles will have to be completed back in the jewelry studio, and can be mailed home to visitors. For people buying the bangles as gifts, a cute postcard can be sent to your recipient to let them know their special creation is on its way!
The Bangle Bar joins the original Jewelry Bar, where customers can pick necklace style, length, and their own selection of charms for a one-of-a-kind creation.
There is also a Kid’s Jewelry corner, where kids can make their own necklace or bracelet with tons of fun, colorful options. This would be a great rainy day activity, or small birthday party activity!
The Sophie Grace Maui Flagship Store is located in Paia at 36 Baldwin Avenue (just up the stairs a bit!) Its open Monday through Saturday, 10ish – 6ish. They also have a poolside shop at the Grand Wailea, from 8:30am to 4pm, closed Mondays and Fridays.
In addition, they have a website that is just as beautiful as all of their designs and their shop, and – yes – features an online store!
