It was rainy the day we were in Paia so instead of a beach day, we were very productive shopping around town. I’ve followed Sophie Grace Maui’s instagram for over a year now and couldn’t wait to pop in when I was finally in town. Jamie, the owner, is also a “sister,” we both were members of the sorority Alpha Gamma Delta in college. Different schools, but it was such a fun connection we made online. Her photos on instagram are absolutely gorgeous and I was excited to see the store in person!
Epitomized in her hours sign, this is a true beachy brand, 10 am-ish to 6-ish. Luckily we caught them during their open hours and were able to marvel at all the color, druzy, sparkles, and the DIY bars. I love making my own jewelry and I wish I had more time to take part in her Bangle Bar. Most of the pieces are elevated chic with a laid back twist. Druzy shells with beaded chains, gold cowrie with colorful rope, and lots of shark tooth and shell pieces. I would absolutely wear those cowrie bracelets 24/7, and for the rest of the jewelry, layer over a swimsuit during the day, and pair with a kimono and heels at night, the perfect transitional piece.
If you’re in Paia, or in Wailea make sure you stop in and check out all their handmade pieces. If you are eager to shop, check out her website SophieGraceMaui.com or Instagram @SophieGraceMaui. I’m obsessed with the white and gold druzy pieces that she most recently posted online. I can’t wait to return and snag some of her gorgeous jewelry!
