    Akalei is Hawaiian for "bead reflections" which describes this unique necklace lei design style available only here on Maui. We specialize in designing a wide range of modern yet familiar Hawaiian Lei for woman, girls and men.

    The Orchid Lei were modeled after the beautiful Hawaiian island flower lei, the necklace and kumihimo pattern are availabe exclusively at Akalei Designs. These are typically made from flowers leaves, feathers, or natural fibers resulting in vivid color combinations. 

    This beautiful handcrafted style lei was made using hundreds of glass rose petal beads and Japanese seed beads on multiple cords that are woven together on a Japanese marudai braiding stand.

    The necklace is created using an ancient Japanese braiding technique called Kumihimo, a Japanese word for “gathered threads". This art form goes back hundreds of years as braids were made for use in armor for Japanese samurai warriors. In modern times these braids are designed as belts (obijime) that are worn as a belt with a kimono.
