At lelamooi a lot of love and detail goes into a single piece, from designing to wax carving and casting to hand finishing and gem setting. They work in Continuum Sterling Silver(935) with Palladium. This patented sterling silvers has the look of Palladium and the strength of gold and is unlike any other sterling out there. These semi-precious pieces are handcrafted in California.
lelamooi founder, Kristen Hawkes was raised in Marin County, California. She has since found herself committed to the creative process in her life and career, having worked in various aspects of art and design throughout the United States and Europe.
lelamooi pieces are handmade individually by gifted Master Metalsmith's (Jimi Fortune & Steve Godwin) through the intricate and specialized art of lost wax casting. The result is a one of a kind design that balances yin and yang, feminine and masculine.
