About

Aloha is what it's all about...

I'm a maker! I can't be anything else. I tried, oh heaven I've tried. I'm a funky shape, just choosing to make my mark, and sharing it with anyone who wants to get their hands wet and start a mess.

Stone & Bone, is my LOVE CHILD that has continued to grow over time, and I see no end to the madness. LOL...I'm addicted like fish to a lure with all those little shiny beads, wire and gems, I can't seem to get enough. But, I guess I'm in the perfect place right here on Etsy.com, it's like coming home to a place where everyone just gets me.

Each Item in my shop, comes with sort of a story all it's own, but I believe like the paintings that I create, "They should stand on their own, and the person who's attracted to it should want it for what they see in it, not for what my story is." Each piece becomes intimate for that person, or the special one they're purchasing it for.

I create from a cultural tradition, that aloha and magic is woven into each piece, making them blessed and empowered with life giving energy.

It's what Stone & Bone is known for. Over the many years that I've been selling my work in galleries in Hawaii, the one most very important compliment that I've continuously received is, "Your work pulled me in, I can feel the Aloha you put into all that you do. It just called to me." That beings said, Now you can see why I love what I do. It touches people, I can't explain it to you how it happens, it just does.

What matters to me the very most, is that my customers know they are very special to me. Many have become long time friends, and even ohana. Trust me when I say, Etsy has allowed me to reach across the world to people and places I could never even imagine would want what I make. But now I know better. {Mahalo Etsy}

Aloha

Always with 100% Aloha from Hawaii

    I can't help myself, I'm a hopeless romantic, believing in all things magically creative, colors, beads, crystal, paints, you name it, I'm like a little fish in a big pound and every glittering shiny object lures me in, but what comes of it, IS ALOHA

Shop policies

Last updated on December 17, 2013
Aloha & Welcome to 2014 Here at Stone & Bone , all things are custom made by hand, with found, bought, or made materials. No two pieces are ever a like. Come to think of it, we strive to keep it that way. We believe by using odd shaped beads, discolored cording, varied forms, metals, and wire sizes, is all part of the Stone & Bone experience. That being said, expect our work to be irregular in size, shape and color, but most of all a very unexpected delight, that will definitely tickle your fancy and meet all your expectations of true craftsmanship.

We’re not your typical type of store, No way, we know you’re special, we want you to know that what you buy from Stone & bone is never going to be duplicated. So just remember, our prices are based on a one of a kind specialty custom made piece of wearable artwork made just for YOU, by true craftsman, that has honed their skills and talent.
