Akalei is Hawaiian for "bead reflections" which describes our unique necklace lei handcrafted only on Maui. We reinterpret and illuminate traditional Hawaiian Lei using a vast assortment of glass and natural beads, Japanese silk and synthetic fibers, and a wide variety of braiding techniques and inspirations from across the globe.
Hawaiian Island Inspired Beach Blue Necklace & Bracelet Set (with starfish charm)
Whenever I see blue tones blended with brown and amber it reminds me of a beach landscape - the ocean and land. This fun set has two pieces, a 19" necklace and a 7.75-8" bracelet both with silver toned magnet end caps. One benefit of matching magnets is that these items can be combined to wear a 26" necklace. The starfish charm adds that extra special beach vibe to this set. The last photo has this combined necklace shown as it would look.

We specialize in designing a wide range of modern yet classic Hawaiian looking lei. For customized orders please contact me at email@example.com.
Kumihimo is an ancient Japanese braid making technique that creates beautiful and durable interlaced necklaces and bracelets. This art form goes back hundreds of years as braids were made for use in armor of Samurai warriors. In modern times these braids are used for belts (obijime) on kimonos
