This necklace was inspired by the beautiful shell lei of Ni'ihau. (Hence the name!) I made this necklace using forbidden-not shells (cousins of the famous kahelelani shells), and tiny mongo shells in green, white and yellow for a pleasing visual contrast. At the end, just to get fancy, we added a small nugget of real blue coral and a small spiny oyster disc. 'Dreams of Ni'ihau' would be perfect for day or evening wear for men and ladies. It was made specifically to be worn by ANYONE! Looks great chilling at the beach or the pool, or for a night out! Goes perfectly with bikinis, boardshorts, button-downs, Hawai'ian shirts, or a little black dress. We don't discriminate. This necklace is about 11" - 11.5" when worn. It is strung by hand on fine wire. It is finished with clear beads and a lobster claw clasp. Any other questions, please let me know!
