Each hoop is handmade. Each pearl is hand drilled. And they were made one by one, on different days, just as they should be. They aren’t perfectly manufactured rounds, and the pearls aren’t perfectly matched in size. Cause this is real life, and a real person made them. The hands that made these, are the same ones that rub my shoulders when I’m tired. They feed our fish when we are away. They cash out our register after a long day of work. They belong to my friend, Anna, and she puts a lot of love into her earrings. I own two pair, and I wear them a lot.. Not just cause I love Anna, but because they are unapologetically imperfect. A reminder of who I am, and they way I should be.

Made by Anna Arita
Anna has been a friend to The Bead Gallery, almost from the start. We opened on Kapiolani Boulevard in 1997 and she used to get her nails manicured in the same building. Her cousin told her about us, and while NOT a beader, would stop in to socialize with us! She’d pop in to close our drapes and help us shut down, and it didn’t take long before she became a beader! Anna’s jewelry sold here is guaranteed by The Bead Gallery (and that she still comes in every night to close our drapes), so should it break with loving wear, we will gladly repair it. Aloha!
