About Aloha

Post by BeadThrilled on Sat Apr 14, 2012 11:44 pm

When scouring the web for news I stumbled across these beautiful beads, called Charms of Aloha by Cathleen Bunt. Someone ever heard of these before? Have a few of these?

The beads seem larger beads than most Trollbeads. Great idea to use those dyed silk cords to show off larger beads or pendants!

I have no ordering info yet on these. The beads seem to be unavailable outside Hawaii but I'm awaiting info from a few shops and the designer.

The beads are available as polished and oxidized sterling silver.
The brands website: http://www.charmsofaloha.com/



They really remind me of... sigh...

Wow!!! Some of those are really beautiful! I hope they end up being available outside of Hawaii Smile

I LOVE the little sea turtle, star fish and the sea horses too. Although, I agree they are a bit large for a bracelet, but would look STUNNING on a necklace.

I emailed the artist and she has sent me a list of pricing for the beads. You can email her as to which bead(s) you are interested in. I also shared the beadthrilled site with her and you may see her as a member soon....Smile

She didn't mention this list to be published, neither did I agree already.
If you read my previous posts you'll have noticed we are talking already.
Cathleen has checked in last night.

It would be nice to see Cathleen Bunt here on beadthrilled Cool

I like the silvers, especially the turtles and the rose and .... Very Happy

Seeing a photo of the actual bead beside the name and price would facilitate any buying for me!

Which one is Aloha?

Cathleen provided me the list last night. I emailed her from her website (contact information). She asked me how I found out about her beads and I shared the beadthrilled site with her. Was I not suppose to post the list she shared with me?

I think this is the larger Aloha bead.
The smaller one comes as a pair and one says Maui and the other Aloha.

Thanks! We got the list too but it was unclear whether these prices are also meant for her website or whether this is a list meant for her resellers (on Hawaii). Didn't want to put her in an awkward situation once these prices should not have been shared, yet. Hence we awaited her registering.
