Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

Oahu Charms was started on Oahu, Hawaii in 2018. We are now based out of Houston, Texas as of June 2023.

Do you have any locations on Oahu?

You can find my clay charms at Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City and Mapunapuna through their My Locker Program. Pearl City Locker #38 and Mapunapuna Locker #58. Simply ask an employee to open the locker if you've found something you like, they will then take the charm to the register for checkout. For a glimpse of what the lockers look like, please head over to 'Locations'!

Do you take charm commissions?

Yes, turnaround time is 2-3 weeks. The most common charm commissions that I work on are custom pets such as cats, dogs, bunnies, etc. Please see the 'Custom Charms' collection or email us at: for more information. 
How are your charms made?

Each charm is carefully handmade from scratch, meaning that all the details are stuck on individually. Besides nimble fingers, I use a variety of sculpting tools such as needle/dotting tools, exact-o knives etc. Glitter, powdered pigments and all sorts of colors are used. I bake the charms and glaze each of them with a resin so they have a clean, glossy finish. 

What materials do you use?

Our charms are made from Premo polymer clay which is an oven-bake clay. Polymer clay is made from polyvinyl chloride, otherwise known as PVC, which gives it it's plastic, lightweight properties. As long as you store your clay properly, away from direct sunlight or heat, polymer clay will retain it's malleable texture. It can be reused endlessly until you cure it at the right temperature, making it different from ceramic and air-dry clay. When it's cured correctly in the oven, polymer clay is strong and durable.

We use UV resin to give our charms a glossy finish. This resin cures in UV light.

What can the charms be used for?

They're the perfect accessories for a cellphone, pouch, or backpack. Dainty enough to be used as a pair of earrings or a pendant! It is NOT recommended to put the charms onto a bulky key chain. Even though my charms are made with high quality materials, they are not indestructible. The charms should be handled with care because they are miniature works of art.
