Orientation:† New Visitorsí Center

If this is your first visit, maybe I can help you find your way around.

Looking for something fun and funky?† Love boho-chic?† Hereís your page:† Fringe Beaded Bracelets and Accessories.†

Need something more elegant or traditional?† Start here:† Swarovski Crystal Pearls where you will find Swarovski Crystal Pearl necklaces, bracelets and earrings.† And visit this page:† The Mixed Bag, where youíre find a variety of art glass, gemstone and metal pieces suitable for casual or formal occasions.† The pages have only a few of my designs, but the idea is for you to tell me your color preferences and then I can work with you to create a style that youíll love.†

Looking for hand-crafted soap?† Hereís the link for you:† The Soaps.

Need something else?† Check:†† The Silks and Mosaics and Garden Stones

Feel free to browse.† If things are going well, the links should take you to the boutique pages.† I decided that I donít want to use a stock template for my website, so Iím the only one to blame when things go wrong here.† I think this is a more personal way to present my designs.† Whenever I get a new idea for a bracelet or something else, Iíll try to get it posted as quickly as possible.† Sometimes the result of my fiddling with the site is that I make it worse and less user-friendly, instead of improving it, so your patience and kokua is appreciated.† If you notice a problem, please let me know.

For those of you who have not worked with me before, the process to make a purchase is pretty simple:† If youíd like something created especially for you, send me an e-mail.† (If you feel the need to obtain a reference, I can put you in touch with some of my happy customers from around the world.)† I insist that no payment be made until your items are finished.† At that point, I will send you a photo via e-mail for your approval.† If you are satisfied with my creation, Iíll send an invoice and youíll send payment.† The item will be shipped upon receipt of your payment.† If you're not happy after you receive it, you can return it for a full refund of the purchase price, but I do not refund the cost of postage.†

Friends, family and repeat customers are always offered generous discounts.†† (I consider all Kamaíaina to be part of my Ohana even though I currently live on the mainland.)† I accept personal checks, money orders and PayPal instant transfers.† With prior notice I can accept credit or debit card payments via PayPal, but I will add a processing and handling fee to the invoice.† On bracelets, that fee is $2.00 per bracelet.† I normally ship via USPS Priority mail, which runs $4.80 if the item(s) can fit into a small flat-rate box.† For bulkier items, larger flat-rate boxes can help to keep the cost down and I will also check pricing at FedEx, etc.† You will never pay more than I do for the cost of shipping.

Please keep in mind that Iím a simple, one-wahine operation so delivery to you will always depend on my schedule and whether or not I have the necessary materials on hand to create the look you want.† My prior commitments and pending orders will also affect delivery to you.Sometimes I have supply problems, but usually itís better now that Iím not living in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.† Your patience is appreciated.

Thanks for dropping by to visit today.† Please take a look at the rest of the website.† Happy Trails!!† (A hui hou to my friends in Hawai'ií.)
