In 1981, two young and talented entrepreneurs began a jewelry business in their single car garage. Thirty years later, in 2011, co-founders Holly Hosterman and Paul Lubitz opened a Holly Yashi retail store which is built inside their current Humboldt County jewelry design factory. In addition to showcasing Holly Yashi’s award winning jewelry and offering other gift items, the store allows visitors the rare experience to see Holly Yashi jewelry being made. While the studio currently spans more than 15,000 sq. ft., Holly Yashi continues to honor and preserve the art of jewelry making by crafting each item by hand in small batches. Customers are served free cappuccinos while they shop. It is the perfect place to bring out-of-town guests on a fun filled field trip.
