Lani Makana - which means "gifts from heaven" in Hawaiian - is my celebration of the little gifts in every day.  My styles are inspired by my time spent in Hawaii and my love of the California Coast!  I strive to provide quality products that can be cherished for years to come and I am always on the search for beach treasures and natural stones to incorporate into my styles.  

Katherine Makaiwi - Owner, Creator, Designer, and more! 

It started with a passion for crafting things from a young age, and then I added a dash of the beach!  I'm a California girl with a Hawaiian heart.  Most designs in the shop are handmade by me, and other beachy styles that I have fallen in love with and know you will love too! 


The beach is a place that brings peace to my soul.  It has carried me through some of the most challenging times in my life and always brings comfort and healing.  Though I have moved away from the Islands now, I'm seeking that bit of the beach everyday, and I want to share that with you!
