Hawaiian Lei have a rich tradition of symbolizing love, honor, and friendship. Akalei Designs blends Japanese kumihimo braiding techniques with tropical Hawaiian flower and shell lei to reimagine the world of jewelry at an attractive price. We make jewelry that are distinctive, durable and easy to care for (Akalei is Hawaiian for bead reflections).
Inspiration for our lei come through flowers, coral, reef fish, ocean life and luscious landscapes of the Hawaiian islands. Lei can be made for any occasion, including Weddings, Graduations, Baby Showers, Birthdays, & Anniversaries. Matching earrings can be custom order on many of the Hawaiian Island items. Please send an inquiry to email@example.com.
Beginning Winter 2021 kumihimo braiding classes will be offered in-person on the island of Maui, and using on-line Zoom workshops. Class kits will be available for purchase prior to the start of the scheduled classes to include beads, fiber, kumihimo disks, and instructions.
