As a creative and someone who supports other creatives daily, we were super drawn to Cailyn - the badass boss-babe and owner Art of Sunshine jewelry. Her styles are bound to warm up any winter mood!

Cailyn Costa’s inspo for the now booming brand started in 2013 when she started collecting shells and seaglass from the shore of Oahu as a way to escape the stress of school and life in general (which I think we all can relate).

After collecting jars upon jars of beach gems, her creative side saw potential to create some magic. She quickly decided to start making beautiful, handcrafted jewelry as a way to showcase her artistic self.

What makes this brand extra rad is that every piece is hand picked straight from Hawaiian beaches - which not only makes them super authentic, but also unique and different with all of Mother Natures added touches. Cailyn states, “"I want to provide my customers with jewelry that captures the islands elegance and charisma. Each piece of jewelry is made with quality metals, semi precious stones and shells only native to the Hawaiian Islands”.
