Inspired by Aloha

Aloha and welcome to my shop! I use to be a hobbyist and created items for Etsy part time, but after being laid off 3X from my corporate job as an Executive Admin. I decided to take my love of creating and make it my full time job. I recently sold my house in California and moved to my dream location in Hawaii where I now have a small art studio (versus the tiny spare room I use to have). I love the constant warm temperature and breezes and enjoy listening to rainforest birds and Coqui frogs. The island is my inspiration!

People assume if you live on Hawaii you spend all your time at the beach, but Etsy is my full time job and like any job, my day starts around 7 or 8 in the morning and I work tirelessly all day till about 6 pm at night. I love creating items for my 5 Etsy shops, yes 5 – as I’m serious about Etsy! I do get to the beach too…..

My morning starts with thank you’s to customers, answering customer emails and then printing out the orders for the day. Once orders are made and boxed up, then I spend my afternoons creating more items for Etsy, taking/editing photos, listing items, and working on the shops. Having one shop on Etsy is work, having 5 shops is a LOT of work, but I love creating and Etsy is the perfect platform to show off my creations.

I love exploring locally and online for new materials to make jewelry, mala’s, or natural products for my herbal line. The possibilities are endless and only hampered by not enough time in the day!

Thank you for stopping by to find out about me! You can find my Etsy shops at:

OwensAcres – I’m a Certified Master Herbalist and this is my original shop where I have my natural herbal products, bath/beauty items, lavender gifts, soaps, salves, medicinals, scrubs, perfumes, wedding favors
OwensAcresDesgin – My second shop where I create everyday affordable jewelry
HaoleGirlHaiku – My tropical shop where I have all things tropical including jewelry, décor, and gifts
HaoleGirlHaikuZen – My Zen shop where I have malas, prayer beads, and zen-like gifts
Vibergy – My newest shop where I make gemstone jewelry and where I have an ongoing Trunk Sale (aka Garage Sale)

And my husband’s shop:
KnuckleheadKnobs: Stone and shell cabinet knobs and pulls, unique stone gifts

    I love to create. Whether its shells, stones, beads, or other mediums, I love working with my hands and raw materials to create little works of art. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii and I am inspired daily by the beauty, nature, and ocean here.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be completely happy with your purchase. If you are not happy, please let me know and we'll make it right by replacing, substituting, fixing, or refunding your purchase. We'll do what works best for you! Please contact me if there is an issue BEFORE you leave feedback so we have an opportunity to make you happy.

Please choose items carefully and remember these are handcrafted and some items are made-to-order. Returns are accepted within 7 days and items must be returned in original condition and returned in a box. Misuse by the customer is not refundable - it's jewelry, wear with care!

Returns are accepted, however, you will not be refunded for postage to or from, and refunds are not issued until item being returned, has been received. Items must be returned in a sturdy box, do not send items back in a padded envelope please.

Accidents happen and your item may be able to be repaired, at little or no cost to you. Lost pendants, stones, charms, or dangles will not be refunded or replaced.

All packages have tracking. If your package is marked 'delivered' by the US Post Office it releases us from liability. Lost or stolen packages are not our fault responsibility and no replacement or refund will be issued.

It is the customer's responsibility to ensure there is a safe place for packages. If you are expecting a package, leave a note for your carrier and ask them to leave it for post office pickup if it will not fit in your mailbox. Package may also require a signature, so be on the lookout for a post office pick up slip.

If you do not have a locked mailbox, high-value orders will be shipped 'signature required' as this keeps porch pirates from stealing packages the postal carrier may leave out.

I accept Direct Checkout, Pay Pal, and money orders. Note, payment by money order: items cannot ship until payment is received in the mail.
Shipping
I typically ship in 1-2 days, with the exception of the busy holiday season then it's 1-3 days. Shipping is Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from Oct - Dec.

Shipping for multiple items on any website can be tricky. Never worry about being overcharged for shipping as I will refund any difference back that is over $1. I hate it when I get overcharged for shipping too!

All packages have tracking. If your package is marked 'delivered' by the US Post Office and it is lost or stolen, it is not our fault or responsibility and no replacement or refund will be issued.

INCORRECT MAILING ADDRESS: Shipping labels are generated from the information in your Etsy account. If your address is incorrect and the package is returned you will have to repurchase the items, including shipping. Shipping will not be refunded if cancelled out by the post office.

Additional policies and FAQs
Care Instructions:
All sterling silver, bronze and gold filled jewelry will tarnish over time. It is inevitable. Jewelry will tarnish for many different reasons and at different rates depending on a persons body chemistry and jewelry care, use of lotions, perfumes, soaps, etc. Do not wear jewelry in the shower, swimming pool or ocean.

How to clean jewelry:
Use warm water & mild soap, rinse and polish with a soft cloth and store your jewelry in a jewelry box or a zip lock bag to help prevent oxidation/tarnishing

Gift wrapping:
All items come in their own jewelry box tied with a bow. I do not include receipts, if you need one you can print one out from your Etsy account, under You-Purchases.

Good Karma Repair Service: Accidents happen. I am happy to fix jewelry for free, you just have to pay the postage both ways. Lost pendants or charms will not be replaced.

If any items are damaged during transport, please contact me with a picture.

Any items that are returned to me due to wrong address / refusal or being undeliverable, will receive a refund minus shipping cost and any additional fees I might had to pay to receive it back. If you still want the item, you’ll have to repurchase it. Please make sure your address is correct in your Etsy account.

Frequently asked questions
What is gold/silver plating? And how do I care for it?

Plating is gold or silver over a base metal (usually copper). It is not solid gold or silver. Gold/silver plated jewelry is less expensive but just as lovely.

Do not wear gold or silver plated jewelry swimming in a swimming pool, ocean, lake/river. As natural (and manmade) chemical particles can deteriorate the gold/silver plating.

Silver is notorious for tarnishing when exposed to water, sweat, soaps, perfumes, and body oils. If your silver tarnishes easiest solution is to use a dab of toothpaste (any kind works) and GENTLY rub it between your fingers to remove the buildup/tarnish, rinse in warm water, towel dry. Harsh chemicals like silver cleaners or rubbing to hard will ruin the silver plating.

How is my jewelry made?

I work from a small art studio on my property in Hilo Hawaii. I make all my jewelry by hand.

Materials are sourced from all over the world.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale is available, but some pieces are limited quantities. Please convo me if you wish to have Haole Girl Haiku jewelry in your shop. Note, I do not do drop shipping - you must have a brick and mortar store.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All necklaces, earrings, and bracelets come in a gift box with a bow. Each box arrives with white tissue paper so all orders look like a gift.

Gift cards and notes are free, just let me know in the comments box you'd like one and what you'd like it to say.

If you want the gift to go directly to the person, EDIT the ship to address at checkout, it's that simple!
