about this shell...
Ceremonial Lei for those very special occasions, such as wedding, anniversary, baby luau, graduation or birthday. This Lei is created with the Opihi Shell, spaced by North Shore Puka Shells, and an extra large green and pink Hawaiian Sunrise Shell centerpiece set between two Cone Shells. The significance of the Opihi in traditional Hawaiian celebrations is a long time treasured custom and is so meaningful due to the difficulty with which the Opihi is collected, many times resulting in the death of the "Opihi Picker" even now in modern times.
The extra large Sunrise Shell is 1 3/8 inches in size. This Lei is 20 inches in length and is suitable for a man or woman. A sterling silver Sun toggle clasp finishes this fine jewelry piece.
A MonicaByTheShore original seashell jewelry design, hand made with aloha on the North Shore, Haleiwa, Hawaii.
