“I take the beauty that surrounds me every day and incorporate it into beautiful, unique designs…so everyone can wear a piece of paradise.”
I have been crafty my whole life (my Mom was the craftiest person I have ever met) I liked big dramatic earrings, so I would buy and always alter/better them. So many people complimented and wanted their own, I decided to start selling.
I lived on Oahu for 10 years, where I started my jewelry business as Shanda’s Hawaiian Designs and recently moved to Waimea where I now do it full time (along with care for/help with 12 dogs, 1 kitty cat, 3 pigs and choke chickens! And a tiny garden:) Re-named; always expanding, learning, improving and upgrading. Now: Ka Hōkū Kai- in Hawaiian; The Sea Star or Star Fish.
