Jewlry -- Holly Yashi
In 1981, in a northern California college town, two fresh college graduates were in search of careers. Holly Hosterman had an art degree in jewelry-making and Paul “Yashi” Lubitz, a double degree in industrial technology and music. They believed their talents laid the foundation for the creation of a jewelry design business, so they transformed their one-car garage into a design studio and got to work from their kitchen table. There, they designed and manufactured the pieces that would mark the start of their lifelong careers.
Holly Yashi’s vibrant, handcrafted jewelry is collected by discerning individuals throughout the United States and has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Good Housekeeping, and Modern Jeweler, as well as on a number of television series. Holly’s intricate designs demand niobium’s consistent coloring potential. Equally important, niobium is environmentally clean from start to finish and so hypo-allergenic that it is used in surgical implants.
