A Lifelong Love

I have been creating jewelry and window crystals for as long as I can remember. It is my love of beads that has been a constant in my life. With their variety of color, shapes and sparkle, there are always new designs to be made. I first began playing with "love beads" and over the years my techniques and materials have evolved and continue to do so.

I have a beautiful studio filled with an array of materials and tools. I like to work when the light is streaming in the windows so that the room is well lit and bright. I usually start with a particular focal bead or strand of beads and start pulling out trays of beads to see what speaks to me. In recent years I started pursuing the metal arts. I have added a jeweler's bench to my studio. I create metal jewelry and findings and look forward to seeing where it leads me.

My passion lies in designing and creating things that bring joy to the wearer (or hanger, in the case of window crystals!). Every time I mail a package to a customer, I feel great excitement at the thought that something I've created will be enjoyed by someone across the miles!

Thank you for visiting my Etsy studio! I hope you'll also visit my website!

    Solana Kai Designs is named after my children. Solana means ‘sunshine’ and Kai means ‘ocean’. It is those natural elements, along with the rest of nature’s bounty, that inspire me. I hope you enjoy my unique artisan jewelry and window crystals!!

Returns and exchange details
Number one policy: I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase! If for some reason you are not, please contact me within 72 hours of receipt of purchase.

Returns/Exchanges/Refunds are handled on individual basis. However, I cannot accept returns or offer refunds on custom jewelry.

Once we have discussed and agreed upon your reason for returning an item you will be responsible for paying return postage. Any refund will be based on the item being returned in the same condition it was sent to you. I cannot resell a pair of earrings without replacing the ear wires due to health reasons and it is also the law. Therefore, I will subtract $3 from the sales price of any returned earrings. For all items, you will only be refunded for the price of the item (less the cost of ear wires, if applicable), not shipping.

Once a return has been authorized, your item must be postmarked back to me within 10 business days and must include a tracking number. Insurance is recommended.

If an item has been damaged due to USPS negligence it is your responsibility to contact the post office and work it out with them, as required by the USPS.

Thank you!
