Aloha and welcome to Rainbows Etc. Like other Etsy artists I pay close attention to detail and continually strive for excellence and perfection. However, I have to admit that I have not yet achieved perfection. Only God is perfect, so I’ve given up on perfection until I get to heaven. Just know that all of my projects are created with painstaking care and constitute my best effort, though,as with anything, none is perfect. Should you have ANY problem, please do not hesitate to contact me; we can solve any problem if we communicate.

I should note here that I have a great support team behind me. I rely completely and unreservedly on a team of dedicated family members for nuts and bolts support. Without them, none of this would be possible.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
We accept PayPal, personal checks and money orders.

PayPal-for credit card holders- is easier for buyer and seller and speeds up the transaction; which makes for a speedier delivery of your hand crafted item(s).

If personal check/money order is your chosen method of payment, we will ship your item(s) once your check/money order has cleared. We will stay in touch with you throughout the process to alleviate any confusion with shipping/delivery date. The package will be "ship ready" even before check/mo clears.

We have no preference, so use whichever method is best for you. Using PayPal means you receive your "joy" much sooner and costs you nothing (other than the purchase price) :)
In the US, our preferred shipping method is USPS Priority Mail, as the costs are reasonable, delivery confirmation is free and tracking information is easy to come by. Having lived in Hawaii for 12 years before moving to Arizona, we found this method to be the most reliable of all and that USPS seemed to be more careful with our packages than some of the other major shippers. For certain items, we will use First-Class Mail but only if accompanied by tracking capability.

The prices we quote are without insurance so if you wish to add insurance to your package, please contact us immediately after the sale -- prior to shipping.

There will sometimes be a discount when we ship multiple items to you. A number of my designs require special shipping set up and adding another item to the package really isn't feasible. In these cases, a second package must be used. For example, with my triple hanging sun catchers, the piece fits perfectly in a special Priority Mail box. Adding another item to the box may adversely affect the shipping of the first item. In that case, we will opt for two shipments but let you know ahead of time. Therefore, it is a case-by-case decision on whether to ship multiple items together.

Simply put, just contact me with your needs and we will work out the most cost effective way to get your purchase to you and still preserve the integrity of the product.

Shipping occurs only after payment is confirmed, so please be aware that if you pay by check or money order there will be some delay. In all cases we try our best to ship within one business day of payment confirmation.

We will ship worldwide. Please contact us so that we can calculate the correct shipping and handling charges.
Refunds and Exchanges
Customer satisfaction is our first and foremost priority. Repeat patronage is a mainstay of any successful business. Should you wish to return a purchase, just contact me immediately and we will provide return instructions. A refund will be made upon the arrival of the returned item as long as it is well wrapped -- in the original wrapping -- and in the condition it was in when it left our premises. If the problem was caused by the shipper, please contact them for restitution. Refunds will be made for the purchase price, however, we are unable to refund shipping costs. This is standard online shopping practice.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders:
If you see a bead combination you like in one of the sun catchers or ornaments, I can usually make it up as a necklace and/or matching earrings. I personally prefer post earrings but others seem to like hoops. I can do either, with or without chandelier settings. We can make it as simple or as ornate as you wish. Just go to “contact” seller to begin a conversation (convo).

If you are like me and allergic to some metals, let me know. For myself I have to buy 14K (or higher) gold and will be happy to do so for you on request. Of course, the price rises accordingly. If anyone knows of a source where I can buy white gold, I would appreciate knowing. God bless!
