Joan Goodman is the designer and creative force behind the PONO Collection. 

Joan lived among the breathtaking exoticism of Hawaii for several years before returning to New York and working in the fashion industry.

After many years of creating beautiful buttons for New York’s top designers, Joan & her sister Barbara founded PONO in 2003.

She chose the name PONO for her jewelry collection with a purpose. PONO is the Hawaiian word for righteousness; quality; goodness; virtuousness; in perfect order. This informs all of Joan’s creations. 

Using fine Italian resins as the main medium, the collection is inspired by Mother Nature, the breathtaking exoticism of Hawaii, the eclectic creativity and diversity of New York City, and the amazing tradition of Italian artistry and craftsmanship. All of PONO is made in Italy.

The PONO collection is sophisticated and cool with a sense of luxury. Joan’s hypersensitive sense of color is an integral part of every PONO creation. 

PONO is honored and delighted to offer timeless pieces that remain eminently creative, conscious and collectible.


"What sets the Italian resin apart is the way the light dances through it."
