These precious gem quality shells were painstakenly collected from the shores of the island of Molokai. They are the same species that have made the island of Ni'ihau so famous. My work has been mistaken for Ni'ihau originals because I learned my traditional sewing techniques from a Ni'ihau Aunty.

Kulapepeiao kipona kahelelani, mixed kahelelani sewn pikake style topped with a puka and hung on sterling silver ear wires. From puka to bottom measures one inch.
Many hours have been spent gathering, sorting, piercing and sewing the tiny shells. Kahelelani measure one eighth of an inch. You are witnessing the natural beauty of these shells as nothing has been used to enhance them. The beautiful pink color and shiny luster is created by ke Akua (God) together with the sea. They would fit nicely in my envelope pouch for tiny items which can be purchased separately.

Custom orders are always welcome. I have additional pairs like these on display at a local gallery, let me know if you need more and I will put up a listing for you. Each pair is slightly different. Made with aloha on the island of Molokai.

My shipping preference is USPS Priority. I will gladly ship worldwide for actual shipping cost. Please convo me with your zip code for a quote.
