Inspired by the Earth, Committed to Sustainability
Every day is Earth Day at Holly Yashi. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and old-growth redwood trees, we have an especially intimate relationship with our environment. This relationship drives our passion for creating beautiful jewelry that celebrates and reminds us of the gift of nature. It also strengthens our commitment to handmade, sustainable, and minimal waste processes. We installed solar panels to reduce our footprint even further – and are always looking for ways to better ourselves.
For over thirty years, we've been making our jewelry one piece at a time with hand tools, people-powered machines, and pure ingenuity. With jewelry designed, made, and shipped from our studio in northern California, we put in a lot of effort so that we don't put out a lot of waste.
Artisanship as StewardshipWe make our jewelry by hand, one piece at a time. A pair of Holly Yashi earrings produces a smaller impact on the environment than mass-produced jewelry.
Processes to be Proud ofWe use more natural light than we use light bulbs. Our double pane windows and skylights allow inspiration and natural California sunlight to shine into our studio.
