Aloha! I'm Rob Arita and I am based on the north shore of Kauai with my family of four. I take the art from start to finish, from collecting to marketing. It is all about quality, not quantity. Every piece is created with Aloha! Every shell is honored...a prayer in a strand. Never has any medium fascinated me as much as the kahelelani shell! Live shells are never harmed in the creation of these pieces! robarita@me.com 914-523-8920
