It’s Talia! I am the owner and designer for Pashey Bella. I was born and raised on Maui where I grew up competing in surfing and paddle boarding events which allowed me to travel from island to island as well as other tropical locations around the world.
In 2005 at the age of twelve, I started making jewelry inspired by the ocean. Shortly after, my dad encouraged me to start selling some of my pieces at local shops. So one day I walked in to a boutique in Paia with my earrings hanging off the side of a jar full of seashells and a look-book of my designs. The boutique bought four pairs of earrings and just like that Pashey Bella made its first sale.
In 2007 when I was 14 years old, I enrolled in the beginner silversmith class at the Hui No'eau. The Hui is a visual art center in Upcountry Maui that teaches artist to develop their skills. On most days my mom would pick me up from a 10-mile paddle off of Maui's north shore coastline, then take me straight up to the Hui.
After getting married in 2013, I was inspired to start designing custom engagement rings. I love working with non- traditional gemstones and getting to be a part of such a special time in someone’s life.
