Jessica Ilalaole is a born and raised Hawaiian native shaped by the love of nature, art and exploring. After relocating to Portland, Oregon later in life, Jessica continued to explore art, inevitably falling in love with metalsmithing. She now lives in a small mountain community in Northern California working out of a cottage studio. Jessica is most inspired by folk art, mysticism, traveling, natural beauty and the mysteries of old. CobraCult jewelry is owned and operated solely by Jessica with the occasional help from friends and loved ones.
