Very beautiful necklace! I am very pleased with my purchase and the service provided.
Take a little bit of paradise with you wherever you go...
Although I was born and raised in Hawaii, The Glistening Pearl started after I moved to Santa Barbara, California. Jewelry making became my creative outlet whenever I got home after a long day, and I was constantly inspired by memories back in the islands.
I try to capture the essence of the ocean in each piece of jewelry: the glistening blue-green waters, the glowing pearls, the smooth pieces of seaglass and shells that wash up on shore...
I love working with beach glass and shells I find whenever I go home to Hawaii. To me, it's a really special and unique component in my jewelry. As my shop has grown and my designs have evolved, I've become drawn to delicate details, asymmetrical accents, and layering pieces.
I really enjoy each creative aspect that comes with The Glistening Pearl experience - from carefully handcrafting each design, photographing each piece of jewelry in my backyard, to hand-carving my starfish stamps that appear on each gift box and shipping label.
The Glistening Pearl currently resides in Seattle, Washington, designing away and reminiscing of lazy summer beach days. I am so pleased that I'm able to continue spreading a little paradise wherever life happens to take me (:
Feel free to follow along!
Owner, Maker, Designer, Photographer
As an island girl at heart, I grew up in the sun, surf, and sand in Hawaii. Birds make me squeal with excitement. My crochet hooks appear when it drops below 70 degrees. I *love* DIY projects. Find me at my local craft fair in this maxi dress!
Thank you for taking the time to check out my shop policies! (:
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Please complete your payment at the time of purchase. Your item(s) will be shipped only after payment is cleared.
Your package will be shipped to your Etsy shipping address on file unless another address is specified at checkout or via the Etsy messaging system.
Orders are mailed via the United States Postal Service's First-Class Mail (Delivery Confirmation is included for U.S. orders) and are safely packaged in an organza pouch and gift box (ready for gifting!) and shipped in bubble mailer. Most U.S. orders arrive within 3-5 business days from the day they are shipped, but please allow up to 14 business days for your package to arrive (just in case your package decides to take a slight detour in transit).
Please keep in mind that USPS is not perfect, and packages are sometimes lost, damaged, or stolen. To keep shipping costs for my customers low, I do *not* automatically include insurance to packages mailed out because most orders arrive quickly and safely. Especially for larger orders, please considering contacting me before making a purchase about adding insurance and/or signature confirmation to your order for peace of mind. I would be more than happy to provide you with an estimate. Insurance starts at $1.85.
If you are interested in any of the following upgrades, please contact me before purchasing so I can alter the shipping price on your item listing, or I can email you a PayPal invoice.
► USPS PRIORITY MAIL packages (additional $4.00) are usually delivered within 2-4 days (after being shipped out).
► INSURANCE provides coverage for lost or damaged items and starts at an additional $1.85.
► SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION (additional $2.10) is highly recommended for larger orders. This upgrade provides you with additional security because the person who accepts your package must sign for it, and it reduces the chance of your package being stolen off your doorstep.
► Items with international shipping options will be mailed via the United States Postal Service's First-Class Mail.
► Any customs fees, taxes, or tariffs that may be incurred at the time of delivery (which vary from country to country) are the responsibility of the customer to pay.
► Depending on customs delays, international packages usually take 1-4 weeks to be delivered. In some countries, such as Germany, packages have taken up to 8-12 weeks to arrive.

CUSTOM ORDERS / SPECIAL REQUESTS
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in a custom order! I enjoy taking custom orders. Adjustments (e.g. chain lengths, colors, 14k gold fill versus sterling silver) to necklaces, earrings, and bracelets may also be possible. Simply just contact me with your requests, and I will do my best to see if I can accommodate your needs.
JEWELRY CARE TIPS
Jewelry should be taken off before showering, exercising, swimming, or sleeping. It is also best to keep your jewelry away from direct contact with perfume, makeup, or other chemicals. Jewelry should be stored in a clean and dry storage container. Although not very attractive, I highly suggest individually storing all necklaces, earrings, and bracelets in small air-tight plastic baggies. It keeps moisture away from your jewelry and slows it down from inevitably tarnishing over time. If your sterling silver or gold filled items are cared for, it will look beautiful for years to come - even with regular wear!
