Bracelet - Vintage Resin Pikaki Beads from Hawaii
I was very lucky to come into some beautiful Vintage (circa late 1960s) Resin Pikaki Beads from a wonderful friend in Hawaii!! Originally, beads like this were made of Carved Ox Bone. In later years, they were made out of Resin, like these beads.
If you want a little bit of Vintage Hawaii, than you want this bracelet. For this bracelet, I used 5 - 13x10mm (1/2"x3/8") Vintage Resin Pikaki Beads from Hawaii, spaced with 6mm Pink Rhodonite Natural Gemstones & 5mm Swarovski Jet Black Spacer Beads. I ended the bracelet with 2 - 10x8mm Vintage Resin Pikaki Beads from Hawaii, 5mm Jet Black Swarovski Crystal Spacers, and 3mm Jet Black Swarovski Tapered Crystals. For the clasp, I used a Bronze Magnetic Clasp! These magnetic clasps are very strong, but I always add a 1" Cable Safety chain, this one is of Silver Plate, just for a little extra security.
The final picture is taken in Natural Light, to show true color, and a representation of size.
The Necklace is an Original Design, and Hand Crafted by me, in Londonderry, NH.
