About Lemon Seed Designs

It all began seven years ago in a hot garage in Oahu. Crafting custom-made pieces and teaching others to tap into the artist inside of them was the vision. With a passion for the island and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, Lemon Seed Designs was born.

Our name pays homage to the pride that one can only get from making something from scratch.  Inspired by one of my beloved students, and her story of placing a seed in her famous Lemon Meringue pies – to let everyone know that each pie was handmade perfection. Her story resonated with me and to my commitment to make life a little more beautiful, by hand-making something one-of-a-kind.

Leaving the island of Hawaii, and taking our adventure to the mainland, was a hard choice. But being closer to my aging parents, and the rest of my family made that choice easier. As my husband was stationed on the mainland, our journey in downtown Norfolk began.

The Oahu spirit will forever be with us at Lemon Seed Designs. We offer locally handcrafted one-of-a-kind Hawaiian-inspired jewelry. We use little treasures from the island to bring our pieces to life. Each piece is made with love and lots of Aloha! Jewelry handcrafted from high quality 100% reusable metals and natural stones, shells and sea glass .

2021 we found our small business in the middle of the covid 19 pandemic. We knew how much this had grown ups stressed out with social media and media information overload burnout. We decided to add fitness to our business model. We added aerial fitness another one of my passion. Teaching Pole fitness, Aerial Silks and Lyra hoop. We opened a larger space in the MacArthur Mall and now offer aerial fitness as well as our Jewelry making classes.
