Just when I think everything is running smoothly and life couldn’t get any better…after a week of great swell and high energy wave-watching at the Banzai Pipeline, the rays of sunshine shine a little brighter upon my soul…I have been thinking about sponsoring local celebrities with my jewelry to help spread the word about my designs to keep the upflow of business. Dreams do come true!
Last weekend at the Haleiwa Farmer’s Market Maui native and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Tori Praver paid us a visit. She had just finished up a Bikram’s Yoga class on the North Shore and was interested in checking out our local market for some holiday gifts, and happened upon our booth. I was more than stoked when she wanted to shop for her boyfriend’s grandmother. (Her boyfriend is professional surfer and Kauai native Danny Fuller, sponsored by RVCA.) Tori was struck by our Madeline bracelets, and was deciding between our sterling silver version or the 14k goldfill version, and decided upon the silver version.
Madeline bracelet, named after my grandmother. Available in sterling silver and 14k goldfill.
Tori ended up choosing some earrings for herself, which I happily gifted to her.

Tori ended up choosing my classic leaf design, the 14k goldfill XL Ligia, which suits her quite well.
I’ve seen her in all types of magazines, ranging from Women’s Health editorials to Guess Clothing ads. She could easily be a Victoria’s Secret model, for she is so beautiful and tall! Not to mention her rad body! Hopefully one day, she’ll be featured in a magazine rocking my jewels!!
Thanks Tori for being beautiful and having a lovely spirit! I hope you enjoyed your shopping experience and that Danny’s granny loves her bracelet!

It’s been a busy week with lots of energy and motion from the Vans Triple Crown Pipeline Event. Congratulations to Kieren Perrow for winning Pipe Masters and to John John Florence for winning the Triple Crown!! I love that our local Hawaiian boy shows his aloha through his championship crown!
My wonderful employees and I took a little break from jewelry designing fun in the studio to check out the contest. We all wore our super comfy Noelani Designs tank tops so we could represent:)

My older brother, Christopher, was working one of the cameras for the event, so he put us on the spot for a minute while we gave our best model poses, threw shaka’s and showed off our jewelry for the world to see! It was a fun outing!!
I’m excited for more big swells to come in, hopefully with less wind so the conditions will be fun. I’m looking forward to bodysurfing lots of waves this winter with my girls!! It’s so much fun to feel the water all around me, whether I’m underwater or riding the wave. It’s LOVELY!!

Speaking of surf, I was offered a wonderful interviewing opportunity by Marlcon, a Brazilian sports blog editor, who featured me in his blog. Check it out HERE. Thanks for the feature Marlcon, I hope to inspire!!
