A Spotlight On: Holly Yashi Designs
I’m a sucker for jewelry (I even learned how to do my own beading and wire-work, including hammering!), and my all-time favorite jewelry line is that of Holly Yashi. Based in Arcata, California, between the Redwoods and Pacific coastline, Holly Hosterman and Paul “Yashi” Lubitz make one talented team. Just look at the creations below…see why I adore their designs?
Beyond beautiful, right? I love all the little details. The more you study these earrings, the more they stand out. And these are just the earrings…Holly Yashi makes spectacular and truly one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets, too.
Some of the jewelry is simply beyond my budget (the above bracelet is $225), but most items are very reasonably priced. The above necklace is $88, and you can buy earrings for as little as $30 (although many items price higher). While some pieces are costly, keep an eye out for sales, because they do happen! And of course look to see if there is a retailer in your area who sells Holly Yashi designs, because then you can look at these pieces up close and see the kind of astonishing detail I’m talking about! They look beautiful on this page, but in real life, the small etchings and detailed metals really stand out. I’ve never come across another jewelry line like this, and year after year Holly Yashi designs remain some of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I’ve ever seen.
