The history of LS jewelry trademark began more than forty years ago, when Los Angeles California based jewelry designer Lee Sands registered his company Lee Sands Inc. Officially registered in 1980, the company ceased to exist in 2003. In fact, Lee Sands (aka Lee Sandau) began creating jewelry long before founding his family business. It was “Honolulu Puka Shell Exchange”, the company registered in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1975.
Sandau original designs included wooden beads, puka shells, shimmering mother-of-pearl, semi-precious stones, sterling silver, metal alloys, and various natural materials.
Handcrafted from Hawaiian natural materials, his mosaic shell jewelry is unique. Besides, Lee Sands opened Hawaiian handicraft to the world through his enterprise. Actually, it was not jewelry pieces, but accessories that brought fame to the designer. In particular, eel skin leather, which he used for making organizer wallets in the 1980s. According to Lee, he travels the globe in the search of new, exotic sources for future jewelry.
