About

"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:)

HOLIDAYS--. Close to X-Mas, if you procrastinate and order late and upgrade to try and get it on time, be aware its not a guarantee. I will do my best to get it out, but the postal service also falls behind during crunch time.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds. Exceptions would be damages upon arrival, in which we will be in contact and discuss further, i will do everything possible to ensure your satisfaction so that if you are truly unhappy with your product I will do my best to make it correct.To avoid any problems with merchandise(the pictures give a good view on exactly what product you will be receiving) please contact with any questions or more pictures to help you decide.
-If payment is with PayPal the refund of payment window is 60 days of payment received. After that I am no longer in control and will be unable to refund your original payment.
-Lost in the mail. Everything mailed receives a tracking number that you would need to follow up with USPS. If you do not receive your package, that does not mean an automatic refund. That will be dealt with on a case to case basis. As unfortunate as it would be for you not to receive your order, I also did my part and would be losing out. Everything I can do will be done if this occurs. Be sure to look around your place as well, I have had cases where they never received but the tracking says delivered. I contact USPS and it was a door drop, if no one is home they usually put it in a place out a view of passerby. Like in a bush, behind something to hide it.
-Mailing from the United States using USPS for international orders: The tracking number is good until the product leaves the United States. Then the USPS tracking number is no longer available and I have no control or a way to find out the route from then. That will be your responsibility to follow the package and contact your mailing service.
--**International Customers**-- Please advise: Standard International Shipping Cost,$10. This does not include tracking or Insurance. If you would like to make sure your package has this (some countries require priority for jewelry) is around $45. 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.
