Children’s Necklace - Vintage Hawaiian Pikaki Resin Beads
I was very lucky to come into some beautiful Vintage (circa 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.
This Necklace is perfect for that special little girl in your life! Especially if her favorite color is Pink! I used 6 - 13x10mm (1/2"x3/8") Vintage Resin Pikaki Beads from Hawaii, spaced with 6mm Pink Crystals. After that, I stepped down to 10x8mm (3/8"x1/4") beads, spaced with 4mm Pink Crystals. I used a Silver Plate Clip Clasp to close the necklace. For the finishing touch, I added a Blue Swarovski Crystal drop to the end of the 2" Silver plate Cable Extension Chain.
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.
