My husband and his amazing partners opened Taverna in Kapalua yesterday to amazing reviews. I just wanted to take a moment and say Congratulations, this group of people worked incredibly hard on this project. It makes me so happy to see people doing what they love and succeeding at it.

All I wanted to do this year was hit the ground running. My goals were full of ambition and a major sense of urgency. I would like to say mission accomplished, we are working very hard over here to make 2016 the best year for Sophie Grace Maui yet. Which is saying a lot because 2015 was a pretty rocking year.
There's no way around it. The next few weeks are going to be ridiculous. We have our 2016 look book to launch, a little boy turning 4, a restaurant to open, 2 kids out of school for spring break and an assistant away on her honeymoon. So today I'm soaking up the sun and trying to take a mental day off but even as I snap this photo I can't help but think to myself how much better it would look if I was wearing an anklet, but I don't make anklets and just like that I'm designing a line of anklets in my head...
Sophie Grace Maui for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016! It's been 4 years in a row but this years photos are even more gorgeous (and sexy) than years in the past. I'm honored to be included in such an amazing publication.
In early 2008 we opened our first location, a small Kiosk at Whalers Village in Ka'anapali. I would make jewelry sitting outside as tourists walked by. Customers loved to see what I was up to and dig through my stones. Pretty soon I would have a line of people sitting on the planter waiting their turn to design their own piece. And I kept thinking to myself, there has got to be a better way. Six months later we opened our first Jewelry Bar, in downtown Lahaina. That led to the Grand Wailea location, which led to Paia. We still have The Jewelry Bar at the Grand, but we have also taken it mobile. Sophie Grace Maui now offers Jewelry Bar parties at your home, hotel suite, special event or poolside cabana. Design your own piece of Maui with elements from the Sophie Grace Maui collection with your favorite clients, bridesmaids, family and friends.

It's been a whole year of keeping this one quiet. We are so excited to FINALLY announce the news, Sophie Grace Maui can now be found at Tommy Bahama stores and on their website. www.tommybahama.com
Here's to more exciting things to come.
Sophie Grace Maui was voted Best Jewelry Shop by the readers of Maui Time Weekly for the second year in a row. I can't tell you how humbling this is, especially being that it's coming from locals. Thank you so much.
