Pashey Bella was created by Talia Pashey Decoite (formerly Gangini). Born and raised on Maui, she grew up competing in surfing and paddle boarding events which allowed her to travel from island to island as well as other tropical locations around the world. In 2005 at the age of twelve, Talia started making jewelry inspired by the ocean. Shortly after, her dad (John Gangini) encouraged her to start selling some of her pieces at local shops. Talia walked into a boutique in Paia with her earrings hanging off the side of a jar full of sea shells and a look book of her designs. The boutique bought four pairs of earrings and Pashey Bella was Born.
In 2007 Talia enrolled in the Beginner Silver Smith Class at the Hui No'eau A visual art center in Upcountry Maui. This took her skills to a whole new level. She continued on in the next level of Casting & Molding. You would find her Mom picking her up from a 10 mile Paddle off Maui's North shore coast line, taking her straight up to the Hui where she would create. You can find some of her jewelry collections in multiple hotel spas and local boutiques on Maui. You can also find all her collections here in her online shop. After getting married in 2013 Talia was inspired her to start her Beloved line of custom design engagement rings. She loves working with non- traditional gemstones and designs.”
