BRENDA and Maxi
The unique and extraordinary style of Hawaiian Jewelry is created from the collaboration work of a fashion model, Brenda and Maxi’s artist, Howard Miao.
Brenda was scouted in Hawaii at the age of 17 and made a model debut in Japan. Since then, she gained a great popularity and achieved the place for the covers of famous magazines and TV commercials. She now has a family in Hawaii and working actively going back and forth between Hawaii and Japan.
Brenda and Howard went to the same high school in Hawaii and their friendship has continued ever since. When Howard established Maxi about 23 years ago, Brenda embellished Maxi’s debut as a model for gratis even though she was already working busily for her sponsor in Japan.
The collaborative Jewelry is born after they have been working on for it more than a year. The merge of Brenda's unique and modern expression with her commitment, and Howard's certified jewelry making expertise, especially the detailed hand engraving skill present one of the kind Hawaiian jewelry.
