🌈Aloha from Hawaii🌈
I started this shop as rehab for a disability and I have been freediving and making ocean-themed jewelry and gifts ever since (1996)! Craft supplies were added in 2016, a huge improvement to my shop's performance.
I let my imagination run free and craft all sorts of shell and seaglass designs for jewelry designers, local stores and and for creative custom orders.
I also make fan pulls, suncatchers, jewelry boxes, picture frames, magnets, and sell bulk shells (including the well-loved Sunrise Shell) and stock designer-cut gemstone cabochons for your crafting projects or events.
Drilling of your shells and seaglass is available for a reasonable fee.
I enjoy sharing the beauty of Hawaii and of the ocean with my great customers.
I hope you enjoy browsing and will contact me with any questions.
Mahalo for visiting! 🌈🙋♀️🌊🐚🌴
