Handcrafted in Los Angeles,  From Isla, offers one of a kind 14k gold filled jewelry made of delicate stones, and healing crystals. Drawing inspiration from walking barefoot in the sand with salty skin and wind blown hair, the lifeblood of this line is a connection to the sea. Having worked in the fashion industry for years, designer Alexa Seibert witnessed excess of waste disposed by humans into our oceans. She created From Isla to bring awareness to the importance of environmental conservation, which is why 10% of the proceeds from each piece sold is donated to ocean conservation.

Pronounced eye-lahit comes from the Scottish word for island.  I design pieces that in essence, come from the island - each accessory will bring that effortless, salty hair, sandy feet vibe to your everyday wardrobe.

Our ocean is on a steady decline.  Pollution from plastic, fishing nets, and waste chemicals are not only directly killing the marine life but also threaten the delicate ecosystem that keeps our Earth in balance.
 "With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live." - Sylvia Earle
Start by taking simple steps: reducing your plastic usage, choosing eco-friendly products, and picking up waste on your beaches.
By wearing From Isla jewels, you're showing that you care about our ocean - each piece donates 10% to ocean conservation.  We hope you will join in the fight to protect our seas.
