About Us

KaiKoa Designs was born from the burning passion and love of the ocean creators Marc and Sally have. We feel it is
part of our responsibility to help protect our beautiful beaches which inspired the name KaiKoa (pronounced kye-KO-uh). This is why our ocean inspired jewellery is not only stunning to wear, and handmade with the utmost care but a reminder to protect what we come to enjoy and love so much.

Originating from the Hawaiian language, KaiKoa means guardian of the sea and as ocean conservationists we feel this name is very fitting. We believe in forging and finishing each individual piece of beach inspired jewellery by hand, using ancient techniques, including the lost wax method, and through sustainable practices.

Our pieces are made from high quality 925 sterling silver, which means they can withstand any occasion while still bringing happiness to those who wear them. We ship our unique ocean inspired jewellery all over the world, and they can also be found at the local markets around the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

For us it is about more than just creating something you’ll wear- when someone buys one piece or all their jewellery from us, they become part of this wonderful cause. We have joined forces with Tangaroa Blue foundation, to help our beautiful blue planet overcome the mounting issue with marine debris.

As a small business we take steps every day to continue to lessen our environmental impact. With this we strive to send all our stunning pieces of jewellery to you in compostable and reusable packaging.

– The Creators –

Introducing Marc and Sally, the talented local duo behind KaiKoa Designs. Sally is the creative mind responsible for the beach themed designs whilst Marc uses his years of craftsmanship to help bring to life the beautiful ocean inspired jewellery. 
We believe in creating a team of locally sourced talent to design and create our range of in-house made bespoke jewellery. Every piece is handcrafted with 100% sterling silver and forged with perfection in mind right here on the Sunshine Coast.  

– Our Mission –

Our mission is to bring you signature wearable art by minimising our carbon footprint through environmentally conscious, sustainable and eco-friendly actions. 
At KaiKoa Designs we aim to inspire creativity and spread awareness around the protection and sustainability of our oceans and planet. 
We believe in giving back and supporting ocean conservation which is why we donate 5% of every sale to Tangaroa Blue Foundation.

– Our Values –

At KaiKoa Designs we passionately value: 
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS APPROACH TO CREATING JEWELLERY – All of our materials are recyclable, our workshop functions off of renewable energy and we strive to make our packaging compostable. 
HANDCRAFTED TALENT – We believe in creating durable, premium quality jewellery that is livable. Our handmade bespoke pieces are made with sterling silver and means you can wear these in the ocean without the fear of rust. 
ANCIENT TECHNIQUES – Our pieces are not made by robots in factories. We delicately handcraft every individual piece right here in our workshop on the Sunshine Coast, using craftsmanship skills that date back centuries. 
GIVING BACK – We believe in protecting and preserving nature’s wonders, which is why we donate a portion of our proceeds to the ocean conservation group Tangaroa Blue Foundation.
