Golden Lei Mahina Necklace
Golden Lei Mahina
In collaboration with Leihekili we present the second of a 3-piece mini collection.
The kūpeʻe is a nocturnal animal that hides during the day and appears to feed only on the darkest of nights. The golden ring around the kūpe`e shell symbolizes muku, the mark of an absent moon on the Hawaiian tide calendar; this being the preferred time to pick kūpeʻe. The name of this piece comes from 2 Hawaiian words, “lei” meaning adornment, and “mahina” meaning moon.
