I take a great deal of pride in the puka jewelry that I make. It is my "bow" to the Hawaiian culture and their ability to create such beauty out of natural, simple things. I make just a handful of these necklaces every year...only as many I can based on the sea glass and pukas I've found over the season. The treasures in this necklaces are some of my most beautiful finds of 2020.
This exquisite, one of a kind Hapa Puka & Vintage Sea Glass Necklace (hapa translates to 'half' in Hawaiian) is like nothing you have seen before. A beautiful chunk of vibrant, vintage turquoise sea glass, as well as over 30 perfectly smooth and shiny surf tumbled pukas float on the bottom 6 inches of this necklace. The top 18 inches of the necklace expose the perfectly hand braided ashy brown waxed cord, and at the back you'll find the sweetest details of all...a turquoise sea glass "bead" (that I've drilled myself) is used to create the sliding closure, while two miniature Hawaiian Dwarf Cones finish each end. This closure allows the necklace to be adjusted up to 24 inches.
Beachy, elegant, feminine and beautifully Hawaiian...and never another like it.
