My Story


In September 2017, I made a life-changing decision. I left my job, Marie-kwondo-ed my stuff, and followed my heart to Maui.

I’m Stephanie, and this is my journey.

Maui is a special place, not just for its experiences but its people and spirit. When you touch the land, feel the sand, and breathe the air, you sense its magic. Snorkeling in its waters is where I feel most like myself, surrounded by vibrant marine life. This underwater world inspires the jewelry I create.

In my new home, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery. Isolation pushed me to confront fears, explore insecurities, and set intentions and goals. I’m still working on who I am and who I want to be, but I’ve found a passion for being a positive influence in my community, helping others believe in themselves, and leading by example.

Little Ocean Jewelry is the result of a dream realized through hard work and a focus on my goals.

Every bead I count, every wire I wrap, is done with love and intention, it holds my mana. I hope you feel that when you wear it or gift it to others. 

With gratitude,
