Get to Know

I got to Hawaii by accident, sortof, in 1987, and I\'m not planning on leaving.I got into beads by accident too. A Hawaiian lady who used to massage my back needed some Job\'s Tears. She knew enough about me at the time already that she knew I would find them for her. Over time more people noticed that I\'m good at finding things for them. If you need botanical beads from Hawaii, please let me know. Ev en if I don\'t have them listed, I may be able to find them for you. Botanical beads can be shipped to the EU as well as Canada for all I know, some may be easier than others, though I don\'t have them listed as such. Some countries are easy to ship to, others are next to impossible. Please contact me if you\'re outside the US and interested in botanical beads.
