About Us

Aloha! My name is Kamalei Nemoto, I was born and raised on the island of Maui, and I am the owner of Kahakai Collections.

My dad’s love for the ocean, diving and collecting puka shells is what sparked my interest and fueled my passion for shell diving at a young age. Loving to work with my hands, I now find so much joy in creating handmade jewelry pieces that incorporate the shells that I find and other treasures from Hawaii’s beaches. I am honored to create a custom piece for you.

Thank you for visiting my website. If you have purchased a custom, handmade jewelry piece from me, THANK YOU! for supporting my small business and my passion.

Enjoy your handcrafted treasures!
