Handcrafted Hawaiian Shell Jewelry by “Shell Dave”
Unique treasures await to be discovered while exploring the majestic beauty this island offers. Be sure not to miss the captivating gifts from the ocean. Hawaiian Shell Jewelry is as rare and beautiful of a gift as you can get from Hawaii.
Many Hawaiian shells are indigenous to the island chain. Some shells are not only collected, but are as rare as insurable gems. We specialize in Kahelelani and Sunrise Hawaiian shell jewlery. Each piece is handmade and therefore one-of-a-kind. There are several designs showcased here. The Herringbone design is the traditional Hawaiian custom for leis. The Rope and Loom Weave designs are both original techniques for a truly unique piece of hawaiian shell jewelry.
Kahelelani shells were made popular by the Royal Hawaiian culture of Niihau and have now become a favorite of visitors alike. In Hawaii shells have been collected, strung into leis to adorn royalty and are worn at special ceremonies such as weddings and funerals. They were given to the deceased as a final Aloha to their loved ones. Now they are donned for every occasion and treasured for their natural beauty. Few people in the world will have the opportunity to experience these unique treasures. They are a blessing to discover … and an honor to share.
