It All Started in a Junk Yard
Yes, literally. Me and Thomas (Co-Founder/Husband) went to Pick-n-Pull where we searched for metal to harvest for making jewelry. The idea stemmed from watching the hit television show Forged in Fire where I expressed desire to make something out of nothing. And from there, Ola 'Elua was born. We came up with the name while driving to get donuts for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Ola 'Elua is a Hawaiian phrase meaning "second life" which is exactly the vision I have for my jewelry!
