    Transparent Red Picasso with Matte Black Dragon Scales "Kane" Necklace - 33"

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

    Our segmented Red Transparent Picasso and Matte Black blend beautifully in this dragon scale beaded necklace lei giving it a similar "look" to those found in Ni'iHau but an organic look to last you forever - a unique and eye catching necklace especially for our Kane (or Wahine too). These dragon scale beads are some of the largest glass beads made by manufacturers in Japan. By weaving over 1000 Magatama beads in this necklace no two are alike. This statement necklace lei is finished with a black toned 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 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
