And there's a photo of the double seahorses bead on a bracelet...and it doesn't look too big at all. Very nice as a focal!!

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.

On the list it says "Suggested Retail" so that would be the public's price, not a reseller's price. But I agree, it's good to verify with her before posting.

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?

I love the beads especially on the silk cord. Agree w/ Bluesybeads about a individual picture of bead beside the name would be helpful once her web site is up on running.

I just emailed Cathleen ... I am hoping she has a "Maui" bead. My husband and I were married on Maui. I have a wedding themed bracelet and would love to have a Maui bead to add to it.

I hope she does. Smile

Hi,

I'm Cathleen Bunt. I make the charms you have all just found. I'm happy to sell them to you, if you want. Just email me. (email at bottom of price list or through contact form on website)

It's nice to see so many people are into these charms beads. I had no idea a forum like this existed. Through the miracle of the internet we all get to converse together from opposite ends of the world.

Maybe I'll post my latest ad that shows some of my new designs not on the website yet. Anyone interested?

Thank you Sita for contacting me.
Aloha, Cathleen

Yes, Britton Gallery on the north shore is the best one over there right now. They are in Haleiwa. Phone# 808-637-6505. I guess I should post my stores.

Does anyone know a good web site designer I could work with to finish my website?

Well I'm having trouble uploading a pic. I think I need it in a different format. They don't seem to want to go on photobucket or image shack. Will figure this out and try posting again tomorrow.

Welcome, Cathleen!!

Your designs are absolutely stunning (both the Aloha beads as well as your jewellery). I can't wait to add some to my collection.

Glad you found us (and a big thanks to Sita!), this is a great forum with a lot of wonderful people sharing their passions for beads. We're pleased to have you on board.

Welcome, Cathleen! sunny

I love the beads I've seen so far on your website. I look forward to being able to order them. Also, how many colors of those weirdly wonderful ribbons are there???

Okay, well I guess i figured out how to post a picture because here it is, my first ad.
If you look closely you'll see a few of my new designs. A whale tail, and then the petroglyph sweethearts right next to it - that charm has "Ku'u ipo" written on the back which means sweetheart in Hawaiian. Also the single seahorse and the pineapple.
I'm also getting some glass beads now made here in Hawaii. The 2 fatter blue ones that look like beautiful ocean water are an example.

And the ribbons? There are over 50 colors! Really an amazing selection. Don't even know how to show all of them.
Guess I need to do more photography.

I love the look of the ribbons too but I am curious to see how they are fastened on a wrist.

Just make a knot Very Happy
For more security slip a bead over both ends, make one knot on each end and knot together both ends. Even if the knot opens, the bead will hold it together. I also use them as a necklace with beads or a pendant on it.

Thanks, I will have to get one and play with it.
