    Dark Topaz Dragon Scale beads blend into a super shiny finish, but most interesting is how this feels in your hand. It truly is like cool snake skin or even what a real dragon scale might feel like. But in this necklace lei we loaded all the beads facing in one direction so have a smooth almost reflective look, and you will certainly gain attention while wearing. Because we use glass beads this design will last forever (with normal wear and tear of course) These dragon scale beads are some of the largest glass beads made by manufacturers in Japan. By weaving over 800 Magatama beads in this necklace no two are alike. This statement necklace lei is finished with a silver toned metallic magnet end cap that has a extra 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 then woven together on a Japanese Marudai braiding stand (see photo).

    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
