As COVID-19 has forced many of us into quarantine, I’m sure that we’ve all found creative ways to pass the time. During the pandemic, I developed the skill of making polymer clay earrings. It’s a process that I find meditative and it has brought me great joy during my days at home. With that in mind, I also love being able to share my culture, so I am proud present “Hikaw”!
As you may know, hikaw is the Filipino word for “earring”. I wanted to pay homage to my Filipino Heritage by dedicating a brand that uses notes from the Philippines. You can check out each design at our website, www.hikaw.shop or our Instagram @hikaw_shop. We are planning to donate a portion of the proceeds to a Filipino charity soon, so please email any suggestions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
