Lopaka Designs: Unique and Timeless Inspiration"Lopaka" is Hawaiian for "Robert." My name is Bob ... aka "Robert" ... I was born in Hawaii ... and though I reside in the fantastic Bay Area, my roots are in the Hawaiian Islands. I love antiques, family history, ephemera and making things. Lopaka Designs is located in Vintages, our shop in Los Gatos, CA. At Vintages we sell handcrafted, Made in America products, vintage treasures from Victorian times to the 1960's, as well as other gift items.
I am one of two crafters in the shop ... Susan has been creating wonderful crafts, jewelry, tags and cards for quite some time now. Her designs are available the her Etsy site Pretty Ribbons as well as in our shop.
Lopaka Designs is my Etsy site and I am now starting to place some of my own designs on the site. Some of the early items are jewelry ... handmade using repurposed antique and vintage treasures, combining my love of antiques with contemporary findings to create mostly one-of-a-kind jewelry, accessory and decorative pieces. I hope you love them ... let me know what you think.
