    Imagine buying a Forever Wedding Lei in Hawaii and having never to worry about it wilting?

    In this modern day take on Lei we have designed a "White Wedding Haku Rose Petal Lei" that includes hundreds of white rose petal leaves and is accented with additional mini white rose petal and seed beads for a perfect "Hawaii" or beach wedding lookThe gold toned hammered clasp will keep this secure. This lei has a sleek feel and drapes beautifully when worn. You will absolutely love it - and even better it is a perfect gift for a wedding or anniversary.

    Akalei is Hawaiian for "bead reflections" which describes this unique necklace lei design style made only here on Maui. We reinterpret traditional Hawaiian Lei using a vast assortment of glass and natural beads, Japanese silk and synthetic fibers, and a wide variety of braiding techniques and inspirations from across the globe.

    Modeled after the beautiful Hawaiian island flower lei, this necklace, kit and kumihimo pattern are available exclusively at Akalei Designs. This unique glass beaded braid was inspired by the beautiful floral Haku (also known as Po’o) Lei traditionally worn around the head. These are typically made from flowers leaves, feathers, or natural fibers resulting in vivid color combinations. 

    This beautiful hand made style lei was made using hundreds of glass Japanese seed beads on multiple cords that are woven together on a wooden marudai stand (in a kongo gumi braid pattern), then finished with a very powerful gold toned magnet end cap.

    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.
