Welcome to Ohana Expressions!


Owned and designed by local Hawaii artist, Lani Chun, all jewelry shown here are handcrafted polymer clay pieces.

Don't be fooled - there is no paint on any of these! Instead, all designs are Lani's careful manipulations of clay.


From leis that never wilt to cuff links to dress up your business suits - you can find everything here


First time here? Head over to the inspiration page to see why Lani chooses certain flowers and what they represent.

Earlier this year, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I am currently undergoing a year long treatment and am unable to be at any events for the 2017 calendar year. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please feel free to place an order online or by phone as I will be making a limited amount of products.


Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you next year.

If any clay pieces made by Ohana Expressions become soiled, you can use a damp microfiber cloth with a few drops of Dawn dishwashing liquid. Gently rub the soiled area and rinse under cold running water. Set out to dry.


Do not spray perfume on your jewelry.


Keep out of direct sunlight.


Due to customer allergies, I don't use anti-tarnish coating. If the silver on your earrings or necklace clasps tarnish, simply use a jewelry cloth to restore shine.

100% Guarantee


All products are handmade by me. Even after 15 years, my customers have never had quality issues.


Quality is guaranteed if you purchase through this website, with me at various events, or the locations listed in Where to Buy. These are the only places allowed to sell Ohana Expressions jewelry!


Return Policy


Due to the nature of custom orders, and the extreme time and care dedicated to making each piece, all sales are final.


If you received a damaged product (via transit, etc.) send me an email through the Contact Me page so I can fix this problem!
