Day 20 Hawaii

Some recent highlights:

On a night beach, running into many giant turtles the size of tires.
Coconut hunting with an ex-marine sniper.
Vegan pho and music at Temple of Peace.
An Austinite friend visits.
Jungle napping.
Unplanned McDonald’s-busking while sipping coffee to Canadians who happen to love Louis Armstrong.

Day 15 Hawaii

Well, it’s Day 15 of my time in Maui.

Things I’ve done so far:

Designed an earrings series called “Maui Love”…to be soon featured in the Jewelry Shop.

Created client earrings on the beaches here.

Created earrings for 501c3s such as Malama Maui Nui and Paia Youth and Cultural Center.

Learned the lay of Maui’s land…Haiku, Paia, Wailuku, Wailea, Kihea, Haleakala, etc. By car, bus, foot and semi-skateboard (yes, I’m teaching myself how to skateboard.)

Met a lot of vacationing French-Canadiens…and a medicine man who said I should do/charge more for my healing work.

Played/performed twice at Charley’s.

Spent quality time with two native Hawaiians.

Visited and fell in love with various beaches.

Camped in the Maui crater known as Haleakala.

And yes, now I’m without a phone…so to everyone who was waiting for a text or phone call back from me, now you know. As usual, I’m best reached by email.

Love and Mahalo,



Sunset at Maui’s Secret Beach…and yes, this Helenbobelen sang and played songs for her new friends here in Hawaii…

As evident from this blog, I love Austin…and yet I moved to Austin supposing that I’d end up in Hawaii. After about 2 years of Texas time, my beloved Sophia-the-cat transitioned at October’s end, healthy, drug-free, and vaccine-free…and so after about a month or so with her body interred and soul intact in a wonderful place, I got an inkling to go forward and fly to Maui.

So here I am and what this means is that your earrings and my music will touch upon this Earth’s corner.

While I’m here, I plan to create numerous pairs of Earth-friendly/Certified Conflict-free Sterling Silver Thinnest And Strongest Thin Hoop Earrings, along with the modular Hoop Earrings Components that you can pre-order and each pair will have portions created on Hawaii’s beautiful sand beaches…

…maybe when you wear these earrings, you can hear the gentle and silent aloha breeze…

And as usual, for every purchase, proceeds and/or a pair of Sterling Silver Thinnest and Strongest Thin Hoop Earrings and/or music will be donated to a 501c3.

(Thank you/mahalo to everyone in Austin, including Wilder Wood Restaurant and Casa De Luz for the music stages before I left…thank you/mahalo to Austin Food Company and Bennu for the amazing complimentary food and drink…and thank you/mahalo to all the kind Austin people who supported me and my work-play in so many different ways…)

And thank you for your continued purchases and support. I so appreciate you.

“Dear Helen: The earrings are beautiful. Exactly the size I wanted and the look. Pure and simple, so gorgeous. Thank you for knowing how to make them and help protect the earth at the same time. They came beautifully wrapped and when I saw them, it was such a thrill to get what I was hoping for. They are strong which is what I wanted. I have small ears so the size is perfect. Thank you again, for the beautiful earrings, wrapping, and all that you do. I am thrilled with the earrings.” — r.j.
