About

Dream...Create...Inspire....

Hapa Girls began as a hobby back in 2009 when my daughter was 2 years old and still taking naps. My daughter is now 9 years old and Hapa Girls is no longer just a hobby, it is my passion.

My Creative Process...
I am truly inspired from my everyday experiences and the beauty of nature that surrounds me. As an artist, I not only have an eye for the aesthetic qualities of art, but I also have a desire to share my emotional experiences through the pieces I create.

I love the fact that I can create a piece of jewelry from my own joy or heartbreak and someone from across the world will contact me and say how much that piece means to them. Finding commonalities as human beings through art does not only bring me joy, it also makes my soul smile. If I can reach out to someone through my work, I'm on the right path in my life...

Everyday is a Journey...
I absolutely love being able to wake up every day, make my espresso, walk my daughter to school and come home to my studio. Though I tell people I work from home, I really do not consider what I do "work". I feel when you get so much enjoyment from something you are passionate about, you don't have to work at it, it comes naturally.

I love what I do and will continue to create wearable art as long as the passion is within me.

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I'm Elan, owner and designer of Hapa Girls. I am also a mom, a metalsmith, a woodworker, a domestic engineer but most of all a dreamer. If you can Dream it, you can Create it... If you can Create it, you can Inspire others to do the same...

Shop policies

Last updated on December 10, 2015
Welcome to Hapa Girls!
My name is Elan and I am the artist/designer behind Hapa Girls. Everything you see in my shop has been designed and fabricated by me in my studio, ok it's really my garage! I love creating beautifully handcrafted pieces from copper, silver and sometimes brass. Craftsmanship is a top priority to me and hope you notice that in the pieces you purchase.

WHO AM I
So much to tell, so little space!!
I am a MOM, a METALSMITH, a WOODWORKER, a DOMESTIC ENGINEER and most of all a DREAMER. I hope to add more as I continue to grow and experience new adventures. I feel very fortunate that I am able to share my work with all of you!

SMALL DETAILS
I have a BFA in 3D Metal and Design from California State Long Beach and am proud to say that I am doing something with my education and training,

MADE TO ORDER ITEMS
Most items in my shop are "MADE TO ORDER". Why you ask? With the rising cost of metals, particularly silver, it is most cost efficient for me to make an item when it is ordered. On some occasions I will have more than 1 item on hand. Please convo me if you should ever need more than 1 item.


CUSTOM ORDERS
I love custom orders and will do my best to create your vision. If I am unable to make exactly what you want, I will be more than happy to help you find someone else who can accommodate your request.

Back to Hapa Girls http://www.etsy.com/shop/Hapagirls

Please ask questions about anything in my shop that you may want shorter or longer, bigger or smaller, shiny or matte, silver or oxidized, or even my red heat patina.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my work is designed by me and is original. I fabricated all items and photograph all of my own work. My work is not intended for re-sale or reproduction. I can not prevent others from copying my designs, However, as an Artist I would really appreciate the respect of other Artisans to not copy my work.

➤ I DO NOT wholesale any of my items, nor can you find my work anywhere but on Etsy.

Also, leaving feedback or emailing me once you have received your order is greatly appreciated. I am always excited to hear how you feel about your order!

➤ PHOTOGRAPHS
A note about photographs - I try to capture the true color of my items made. However, sometimes lighting can slightly change the appearance.

All products are shot on Macro settings. Items usually appear bigger than the actual size. PLEASE read all measurements before purchasing.

I also re-take photos as items are made to show the slight variations of the handmade process.

*******C L E A N I N G your C O O P E R jewelry*******

Copper is beautiful when polished but it may not always stay that way!
All items I make in copper, brass or bronze are sealed with Protecta Clear by Everbrite. Please visit their website for more information. http://www.everbritecoatings.com/index2.html

YES - Copper can turn your skin green....! However, everyone's body chemistry is different. Also, the green color is not harmful to your skin...

Although all pieces are sealed and the product I use states it is anti-tarnish resistant, I would still HIGHLY recommend keeping your jewelry in a sealed baggie.

~~~~~USEFUL INFO~~~~~
You can remove tarnish on copper with ketchup and an old toothbrush. Wipe it clean and seal with a coating of clear nail polish. I personally clean copper with 0000 steel wool. Once wiped clean, seal it with a coat of clear nail polish.

Thanks for visiting my shop!
