Making A Big, Bold Statement
Ladies, when you’re on a mission for the perfect statement piece, check out the work of jewelry designers and local girls Sarah Ferge and Tiffany Brooks. Owners of Ezer Kenegdo, Ferge and Brooks create a plethora of vibrant, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, including feather earrings, gold and silver chain pieces, necklaces, bangles, rings and more.
“Back in November 2009, Sarah and I were on a search for big-statement feather earrings,” Brooks recalls. “We searched many different stores, yet nothing caught our eye we wanted bigger and bolder feathers than what the stores had available. That’s when we decided to take matters into our own hands.”
“We want our jewelry to bring life and beauty to women everywhere. Our jewelry is all hand-crafted and made with love,” Ferge adds.
A pair of earrings ranges from $15 to $25, necklaces cost $30, and bangles and rings range from $5 to $8 (available online at ezerkenegdohawaii.com).
Ferge and Brooks both juggle busy schedules, balancing motherhood and other occupations. However, these go-getter entrepreneurs are hoping to branch out their business to local boutiques across the island and beyond.
“The most rewarding aspect of what we do is when ladies see our jewelry and say, ‘I need this piece of jewelry!’ or ‘I’ve got to have this pair of earrings!’ It’s such a great feeling when you’ve thought up a creation in your mind, brought it to life, and ladies respond with such enthusiasm,” Ferge says.
“As an entrepreneur you have to make sure you’re truly passionate about what you choose to do, and it’s equally important to have positive, encouraging and supportive people around you to push you to keep going when you feel like giving up,” says Brooks. “You have to remain dedicated and seek out whatever inspires you.”
According to their website, “When God created Eve, the first woman ever, He called her an ‘Ezer Kenegdo,’ which is Hebrew for ‘sustainer of life beside him.’ We want our jewelry to bring life and beauty to women everywhere. Our jewelry is all hand made and made with love.”
