About Alea


Alea Backus of Alea Lani Designs

I've been making jewelry since I was 13, when I made my first necklace for my mom.  My aunt then taught me about wire wrapping sea glass, drilling shells & before you knew it I was creating all sorts of interesting jewelry.  

I attended Sacred Path Healing School in 2005 and graduated in 2016. A lot happened in between starting and finishing, but the school really helped me learn about myself & my own spirituality & how to ground it into my daily life.  We learned about the chakra system & yoga, which I loved! This is what inspired me to create my chakra and lotus jewelry line.

I now teach yoga at the Kuleana Wellness Club, and have completed my integrative health coach training with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  I offer private & group yoga, health coaching, along with healing arts in Pa'auilo & Honoka'a, located on the Big Island of Hawai'i, as well as via Skype, Facetime or phone for non local residents. I offer seasonal retreats with vegan and gluten free meals along with everything else offered here as well!

Thanks for checking out Alea Lani Designs & I hope you enjoy the jewelry as much as I love making it!
