A Piece of Paradise

Paradisus Monstera Leaf Pendant

Paradisus jewelry is the ultimate keepsake for the loyal local and visitor alike. Inspired by the beautiful flora and lush greenery found across the Aloha State, Paradisus truly captures the essence of the isles while maintaining a fashion-forward approach. Mother and daughter partners Linda and Akemi Ueda innately meld their unique sense of styles and love for travel into bold, elegant sterling silver creations.

The duo uses the ancient French method known as repousse, a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side. This forms a raised design on the front and although a slow process, the end result is well worth the wait.

Oh-so collectors’ worthy, the jewel connoisseur can select their paradise-inspired style from the three featured collections: Tropical, Asian, and Sonny Ching. The tropical collection comprises of Monstera, Banana, Lauhala, Pikake and Maile floral and foliage. The Banana and Lauhala cuffs are absolutely on trend with their urban chic appeal. The Asian collection conveys the beauty and strength of the culture boasting bamboo, ginko, dragonfly, maple, and coral inspired styles.

The latest collection is the result of a collaboration with one of the most highly regarded and recognized masters of hula, Sonny Ching. This medley is inspired by Hawaiian ancestry and has a much deeper and sacred meaning. The Sonny Ching collection is meant to preserve the cultural and moral values of the islands. This group was created with the hope that the wearer would find their own personal connection and interpretation of these patterns.

Paradisus is classic, striking, and cool. Each piece is meant to be stunning and standout while reflecting love for Hawaii and the culture. This mother and daughter team has certainly achieved their goal of creating a jewelry line that can be passed on from one generation to the next.
