Akalei is Hawaiian for "bead reflections" which describes our unique necklace lei, hat bands, bracelets, and key chains handcrafted on Maui. We reinterpret traditional Hawaiian Lei using a vast assortment of glass and natural beads, Japanese silk and natural fibers using a wide array of braiding techniques and inspirations from across the globe.
During the 2020 calendar year many wedding's were put on hold.

These glass beaded lei are handmade on Maui and come with your choice of toned magnetic end caps (silver, gold, bronze, brass tones).
