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

    These will surprise you and impress those you see it. The 30" of dark brown beads pop of color (pink, black, brown) are unbelievable as they appear to be wooden but are glass beads. The have a metallic finish, and will certainly gain attention while wearing. This beaded design will last forever (with normal wear and tear of course) as some of the largest glass beads made by manufacturers in Japan. This statement necklace lei is finished with a silver toned metallic magnet end cap that has a super strong hold.  

    We randomly load and then weave over 1000 Magatama beads in this necklace so no two are exactly alike. See the photo of our model with 3 different sizes to give perspective on blending multiple like we do on Hawaii.

    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
