About KaHokuKai

Sales 3,063
On Etsy since 2011

"I take the beauty that surrounds me every day and incorporate into my jewelry, so every one can wear a piece of paradise.”- Shanda Holbert, Designer,

Originated on Oahu in 2011 as Shanda’s Hawaiian Designs. Recently moving to Waimea(Kamuela) Hawaii Island(Big Island); continuing to grow and evolve is now Ka Hōkū Kai- the Star of the Sea or Sea Star.
I have been into crafts and making everything from beach home decor to jewelry my whole life. I get it from my mother, who is the most talented, crafty person I know, in all aspects of it. When I was little I had matching shoes, sunglasses and hair things(that she made) for every outfit.
Besides that I am self taught on jewelry making. Each and every piece is handmade by me. These 2 hands do every part from start to finish, as well as the book keeping, and packaging the orders. I have some very intricate, time consuming designs, but I try the fastest I can to get all orders out as quickly as possible to the customer. I work out of my home. I have my main work room as well as a work area outside, for the sunny hot days and the loud hammering. Every now and again I will take a days work to the beach. Work on orders and walk the beaches for shells, jump in the ocean, soak in the sun and let the creativity go.

Aloha from Hawaii Island.~* I take the beauty that surrounds me everyday and incorporate that into jewelry, so every one can wear a piece of paradise*~

Most of my designs are inspired by the beautiful place I live. The Sun, Surf, Beach, Ocean, all come at you through my jewelry. I handpick shells off the beaches of (I lived on O'ahu for 10 years and now the Big Island) Hawaii Island.

I am completely self taught on jewelry making. Creativity and craftiness, I was born with and the major influence of my mom who is the craftiest person I have ever known or heard of. I am very intricate and a perfectionist as you can see from my wire wrapped earrings and many Original Exclusive bangle designs. I am very big into metal work. Everything starts from a straight piece of wire. I hand form everything, to create amazing one of a kind pieces, like some of my most popular designs, Lotus Flower Bangle, Palm Tree Bangle, Jellyfish Ring, Wave Ring. I also specialize in Wire Writing. All free hand, I don't trace or use any machines.
I also do everything myself. Every piece is entirely hand made by my 2 hands. Help would be nice for my constant order flow:), but I can't just find anyone who can do what I do:)

Shipping

Shipping Done through USPS (United States Postal Service

Average order time is 2 weeks.---THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING TIME---
-Most items are assembled upon purchase( unless otherwise stated in listing)
Multiple items in your order may take a little extra time. If an item is already made it will ship out sooner.

**{Domestic- Average shipping time is 3-5 business days(FIRST CLASS)
Priority Mail- should reach in approx. 3 days.
No Overnight available.
There is no way to get anything faster than that from Hawaii.

--**International Customers**-- Please advise: Standard International Shipping Cost does not include tracking or Insurance.
You will need to upgrade If you would like to make sure your package has this (some countries require priority for jewelry)
{- Any duties and customs are not included with purchase, customer is responsible.

I ship through the United States Postal Service, so once your package leaves the United States, for standard shipping, they no longer are in charge of your package. Some countries will check in your package, that you will see on Etsy in your tracking but this is not a requirement. For packages that have not arrived to you, it is very difficult unless they for some reason get returned to me. Please be aware this is a risk you will take. I cannot fully refund you. I will try and work something out case by case. I understand your frustration on paying for something and not receiving it, but I also put my time and money into a product and then to lose all of that is not fair to me either. Also be patient. USPS won't even start an International Claim until it has been over a month. International Shipping from Hawaii to some Countries takes a while. I can do a claim if you did not receive your package, this also will take some time.

HOLIDAYS--. Shipping times will change, especially Christmas Time.
Orders from Hawaii will require extra time. PRIORITY mail is suggested during this time.
Approx. DEADLINE dates for shipping. They vary year to year
DOMESTIC- DEC. 15
INTERNATIONAL- DEC. 5
