    Due to the nature of the agreement with the vendor, this product can not be returned or exchanged.

    The design has over 10 different colors from a garden combined to make a lovely vivid design. The colors allow you to wear in a wide range of color and fabrics. The garden tones include: green, chartreuse, yellow, and topaz dragon scale beads and are some of the largest beads made by manufacturers in Japan. The pattern is made by randomly placing over 900 dragon scale (magatama) beads in this necklace so no two are alike. This statement necklace is finished with a gold acrylic magnet end cap that has a strong hold.

    Our necklaces feel wonderful to wear and require little to almost no care by using a clean dry towel every few months to keep dust free and bright. This beautiful hand-crafted style necklace was made using hundreds of glass beads from around the world that are meticulously loaded onto multiple cords that are woven then together on a Japanese marudai braiding stand. 

    Akalei Designs make great gifts for woman, girls, and men! Akalei is the Hawaiian word for "bead reflections" which captures this unique style only available on Maui. 

    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
