Today we’d like to introduce you to Talia DeCoite.
Talia, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born and raised in Maui. I grew up playing in the ocean surfing, body surfing, shell diving and making jewelry out of my treasures I found. The ocean inspires all our jewelry designs. I started my business at the age of 12 and had been designing and selling jewelry ever since. I am now splitting my time between LA and Maui.
We work with a local Master jeweler in Downtown LA to create our unique custom engagement rings and ocean-inspired pieces. Because of our love for the ocean and the earth, we have partnered with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and donate 5% of all our online sales to help clean up our beaches and oceans.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Since I started my business at such a young age, I had a lot of help from my dad and other mentors who have helped guide me in the right direction. You could say it has been a long road of slowly growing — definitely some ups and downs but all a great learning experiences.
Up until two years ago, I was hand making everything and found myself at a point where we were growing fast, and I knew that if I wanted to keep growing, then I would need to grow my team. Our move to LA to find a jeweler and suppliers to work with was one of the best decisions for Pashey Bella.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Pashey Bella story. Tell us more about the business.
Our pieces require a lot of effort to bring to life but, are effortless to wear. All Pashey Bella jewelry is handmade in the U.S., and our gemstones are all conflict-free.
You can rest assured knowing that your beautiful pieces did not come at the expense of unethical labor. We are proud supporters of Sustainable coastlines Hawaii 5% of online sales will be donated to SCH in efforts to clean and protect our oceans
