How long does it take to carve a fish hook?
Depending on the shape, size, and material. Carving can take anywhere from 6-10+ hours.
How long do custom made to order pieces take to carve and ship out?
If the listing has a symbol of my hand in gold next to the description, the piece is custom made to order. I carve in sequential order and often have orders I'm working on before your purchase. It may take around 1-3+ weeks carve and ship out. Please let me know if there is a rush to the order, like a birthdate, wedding or other event. There may be an additional charge for expedited orders.
What happens if my Makau breaks?
The pieces I make do not break on their own. An immense amount of pressure is needed to snap a fish hook. I can tell by the stress marks if a fish hook was snapped because a dog chewed it, or got snagged on it. Or sometimes, people hook them on doors, shirts, etc.. and their body weight + momentum = SNAP ! Because I carve from one single piece of raw material or in some cases fuse two or more materials together. I can not repair the damaged piece but will have to carve a new one. It's best to practice mindfullness and be aware of your surroundings.
How do I track my order?
You will receive an update in your www.hawaiianfishhooknecklace.com account and receive an email notification with your tracking number and the shippers website.
Where do you get your materials from?
There's a few different ways I get materials. I like to source local for most materials and sometimes go on foraging hunts to discover unique finds. From time to time materials are given to me as a donation to the arts or purchased from certified dealers around the world.

Are there refunds?
Because all pieces are one of a kind or carved to order, I do not accept refunds or returns. I believe in the transference of energy and once you touch the piece the Mana will transfer and the hook will be yours. It would be unfair to re-sell that piece to another customer when so much energy was put into making the piece. I simply could not do it. All sales are final.
