Thank you for allowing me
to share my passion for this craft with you. Expression through the art of
jewelry making is just as vital to me as the air we breathe. Each piece of
R.Rokero Jewelry ~ Kolohe Gurl Jewelry stems from my love for all the exquisite images that surround
me. Hawaii is breathtaking and my hope is to capture it in original jewelry
pieces for you.
Jewelry’s plumeria, cherry blossom, and maile leaf designs are registered by
the United States Copyright Office ensuring mass produced knock-offs are not
available in the marketplace.
If you see a design you like but have
something specific in mind, I especially enjoy custom-making pieces.
Come back and visit often
to see the latest designs.
One look and you’ll be transported to blissful days under the sun.
Love & Aloha, Renee

RENEE E. ROKERO
Owner and Designer
On the rise to becoming one of Hawaii’s most celebrated
jewelry designers, Native Hawaiian artist Renee Eleu Rokero creates original
wearable art pieces. Always show stopping and emotionally engaging,
Kailua-based R.Rokero Jewelry marries just the right amount of the tropics with
As a self-taught artisan, Renee started her creative
journey at an early age at the lap of her artsy parents. Self-expression was
encouraged in all aspects of her daily life. She learned how to create
purposeful household items with everyday objects.
When admiring the world around her, Renee claims she
sees shapes and patterns more so than colors. Her interpretation of the natural
beauty of her surroundings is reflected in Renee’s designs. She takes a single
shape, repeats it to make patterns, and then connects the patterns to create
the personal images found in each unique piece.
In 2012, Renee was invited to join The Artisan Group
(www.theartisangroup.org) as the only artist from Hawaii. The organization
provides a sampling of handcrafted products to celebrities at top luxury gift
lounges for The Academy Awards, The Golden Globes, The MTV Movie Awards and The
Primetime Emmys. As a result, R.Rokero Jewelry has garnered a growing celebrity
following, most of which have requested custom-made pieces.
When she is
not soldering, hammering or designing jewelry, Renee is a
consultant and clinical therapist with a private practice in downtown Honolulu.
Specializing in individual and marriage therapy for almost 20 years, Renee
enjoys the fundamental qualities of these seemingly different careers – the
process of creating, transforming and impacting people’s lives.
philanthropist and animal lover, Renee has been involved with the following
organizations: Arthritis Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, CHOC
Children’s, Girl Scouts, Hawaii United Okinawan Association, National Multiple
Sclerosis Society, Summit Animal Rescue, Pa’i Foundation, Wipe Out
Cancer, and Oahu SPCA, among many others.
Renee has a master’s degree in social work from the
University of Hawaii at Manoa and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the
University of California, Los Angeles.
Renee enjoys her days as a Kailua girl having fun with
her dogs, cats, and family. At night, she’s busy dreaming up her next rousing
piece of wearable art.
