Reminiscent of the 1970's, the popular Puka necklaces made from the Hawaiian Cone shell, these beautiful natural creations are experiencing a rebirth in popularity. From my markets in Hilo and Pahoa, I have sold my lei's to folks from New Zealand, Japan, Europe and the U.S. Each lei is custom made to your size and type with the utmost of quality and taste in mind: color,texture, size and overall balance are all factors in the creation of these fine natural works of art.
Today, Puka shells are rarely found on the beaches of the Big Island, so we dive to find them. It can take thousands of shells to find the perfect matches as pictured below. The lei on the left is a handsome example of perfectly matched Puka shells with a 3/4" centershell and then gradiated to 1/2" for the rest of the lei. The second lei has shells of about 1/2" in diameter. Both have Sterling Silver clasps and are offered in choker and necklace sizes at $125.00.
