Hali MacLaren received a BFA in Jewelry and a minor in Photography from The University of the Arts in 2014. She currently sells her ocean-themed work in local gallery shops and craft shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Her jewelry line, HKM Jewelry, is made for ocean lovers who strive to protect our seas by starting conversations about environmental awareness and giving back a portion of profits to conservation. Hali believes in the importance of teaching others perseverance, and discipline through her craft. Jewelry making can be so rewarding to experience the hard work of producing meaningful objects with your own hands.
