"HANAI" is a Hawaiian term for "someone that is so close to you, they are like family". HANAI Jewelry was founded by two close friends, Amy Bruno and Jill Rogers, who share a love for beautiful jewelry. While visiting Hawaii together with many friends and family, a local Hawaiian friend introduced Amy and Jill to the term HANAI, describing their sisterly-bond. Their friendship began working in the corporate HR world together. They began to make jewelry together as a fun hobby. Encouraged by friends and family to begin selling their pieces, they were inspired to pursue their dream of turning their hobby into a business. Jill is from Austin, Texas and calls both California and Texas home. Amy is a California native residing in Orange County with her husband Vince and son Bronson.
All of HANAI's jewelry is designed by the owners and carefully hand-made with love, using the finest quality semi-precious stones. We hope you enjoy wearing our jewelry as much as we love creating it for you. We welcome you to be a part of our extended HANAI family!
