See what people from all over the world have to say about Sunrise Shells Jewelry Designs by MonicaByTheShore, made with Aloha one piece at a time on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu, in Haleiwa, Hawaii!

I see hundred's of people everyday, from New York to Katmandu. Half of them comment on how beautiful Monica's shell jewelry is. The other half admire silently. I'm so honored to wear her stunning shells. When I order a new piece, it's at my door step in two day's!!! On that note I think it's time for another pair of earrings. Much Mahalo Monica for accessorizing me every where I go.

Thank you, I am sending you a picture of me with earrings on !! I send you a big kiss and I wish you a wonderful day!! <3 Aloha,

Hi there Monica! Got the package today - wrapped beautifully! Very pleased and surprised to find that the earrings are actually much more petite and the complimenting shells much more delicate than I had expected. Sometimes I can't always judge from pictures. They are really, really, really lovely. Everything I had hoped for and more in those subtle colors. I'm SO glad you created what turned out to be a perfect match between nature and customer! Would you consider putting them back on your website "custom for Janet" with all the details??? I'd like to print it out and keep it with your card and the earrings in the box for future reference. Wearing with Aloha,
Janet

Aloha Monica: The necklaces are gorgeous! With the yellow shell on the twisted cord they are each perfect for who they are for. They just could not be more prefect. Thank you so much for all the time you took corresponding with me to make them just exactly right. You are a true professional as well as artist.

Dearest Monica, Every year for my birthday I've purchased a sunrise shell from your web store. This year I wasn't able to do that since I'm on a tight budget to focus on our joint retirement plan to sell our home, save our funds and purchase a yacht to live aboard.... So GOSH, when I got my husband's birthday gift and saw it was sunnies from you, I was overwhelmed !! What a surprise!! I am very touched and blessed to have these whole sunrise pair! You did a great job mounting them so I could see them inside and out :) I always love your shells, and anything you make, so this was a very thoughtful birthday present .... Your note was very appreciated too. Thank you for helping my dear and very loving husband, Bob, to get this for me for my b-day. I hope some day we can come visit the islands, and meet you in person. In the meantime we love looking in your web store, seeing your shells and your lovely art and will look forward to our next purchase... We send you oceans of alohas, now and always, Rosa and Bob

hi monica, first of all thank you so much for the lei! super cool!
Clark
Monica, It was so pleasing to again be able to sit down and chat with you. I left your house with a feeling of content and happiness. I'm truly excited to have the opportunity to get the shells that my sister will wear!! And you really took time with me. Sifting through every shell, making me a great offer on what I loved. Being in the military I seldom get the breaks many people believe we get. And while having free insurance for medical is great the paychecks just are not that amazing. Even after 10 years!! I'll forward you the pictures of my sister wearing the shells them the moment I receive them. Thank you so much again for everything!! much aloha
Sean
Monica! It's truly my favourite piece I've purchased from you! I really love the pretty feminine colours of it, totally fitting for the surfer girl in me. I think when my friends see it, they'll totally love it!!! I can't imagine having those beautiful shells in your backyard!!! What an amazing thing to see the beautiful ocean everyday!
Jennifer

Each one of www.monicabytheshore.com jewelry pieces is exquisite, beautiful and unique. Her beach candy bracelets and necklaces, her sunrise shell earrings are from nature so nothing is ever duplicated or (ugh!)manufactured! I suggest your asking loved ones for Christmas (?) gift credit and you will have something exceptionally unique representing the beauty of our ocean and Hawaii too! Pure Happiness~Aloha!
Niki

Rusty
Unbelievable truly one of a kind.

I get THE MOST compliments from Monica's shells. Super original designs and the most colorful, perfect looking shells around. Most wouldn't care for the price, but your paying for quality, most business owners would skimp out on that! Thank you Monica for providing the sunrise shells to all!

Aloha Monica , this is Ronald from NC . Just thought I'd let you know that Jodi received the necklace on Christmas day (because no one checked the mail sat) so that was perfect. In her words it took her breath away. So once again thank you so much. And just wondering how you signed the card, Merry Christmas from Ronald or did you decide to go with something else. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.
Ronald
THANK YOU!!! he loves it and he was so happy!! he says it's perfect! you made both of our days! :)
Tiffany
Hi Monica, The necklaces arrived in perfect condition. Thank you for being so prompt. I, of course, love the sunrise and shell necklace - my Christmas present to myself (I'm taking it with me to Bora Bora over Christmas)! The keiki sunrise necklace is for my grandaughter. Also, on your website you show bracelets that match my necklace would it be possible to order one of these? Looking forward to hearing from you. Congratulations to your friend on her 1st runner up finish - a good omen for my necklace!
Wallette
Hi Monica, I looked your Facebook page and website and I was amazed your works and they are so beautiful. I am thinking they are perfect for Christmas gift for my wife in Japan. Unfortunately, I have to send the gift by mail for this Christmas because we can not be together for a while. My wife is pregnant now and expecting a baby next year. So I am looking for a good fortune for her and baby then I found your beautiful jewelry. I am living in Honolulu now. I would like to visit and see jewelry. If you have open hours or appointment needed, please tell me or call me for your best time. Thank you. Best regards,
Aki
Aloha Monica, I wanted to thank you again for your hands on service, my 26 year old son Cole who is Navy Special forces purchased this item through me for his mom as he is deployed in Afghanistan any chance you have that jpeg that was on your site so I could send it to him? He was curious as to which one I chose for him and it's off your website? Thank you!!! Mahalo
Joe

Aloha, Monica, This is Ayako from Laie, the one just visited your lovely studio with my husband and purchased the sunrise shell bracelet. I wear them everyday, and I have been falling love with the bracelet more and more every day. The bracelet became such a meaningful treasure for me. I am amazed by your beautiful talent. Thank you.
Ayako
Aloha Monica, Its me, Michelle. Loving all your pieces, giving them as presents to my loved ones and they are all blown away with your work and talent. I was wondering if you had a jumbo, extra large, unusual (though all your pieces are unusual) shell in your inventory that you could make a pendant for me. My daughter is having a birthday and would like to present her with something special. Aloha,
Michele
Monica: I am overwhelmed at how beautiful your work is. It looks better than I even imagined. Many mahalos for all your help. I wore it to work today and I had many comments on the beauty of the shell. I will enjoy this shell forever! Thank you Thank you…
Cindy
Hi Monica, Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for the beautiful shells. I'm glad I went with the gold instead of the silver. And mahalo for all the cleaning info. Saving up for more shell jewelry, will be in contact with you soon. I'm sorry if I made the transaction difficult for you. I forewarned you...I'm picky. It drives my husband CRAZY! Will be in touch.
Aren
Dear Monica, Walter and I were delighted to meet you today. Your inventory of sunrise shells and your jewelry designs are stunning.

Monica, Received the necklace yesterday. Absolutely stunning--the pictures don't do it justice! The silver serpentine is an especially nice touch. I will send you a pic of your work adorning my stunning bride so you can see how it looks in "real life". Mahalo, Steve

Dear Monica, The parcel reached safety today. It is very beautiful. It is all my image. The size of shell which you chose is perfect for my age. The necklace of gold is not asserted but backs up shell to the utmost. The Sunrise shell of beautiful orange fits my skin. I LOVE it! I appreciate, Monica. The favorite choker has risen to your online site,Red Coral Sun!I would like to buy it dose not sell even if it becomes April,it is my birthday. Thank you,
Shinobu
Monica, I just wanted to let you know your necklaces you made for me give so much Aloha to everyone who see's and asked where did I get such a beautiful necklace...I just wanted you to know that!!!
