Hawaiian Kukui nuts jewelry

From Hawaii, there is one unique design of jewelry all natural... Women there, love to make everything from what the nature gave them. And it is the most beautiful and unique design that you can see around.

Kukui nuts are collected and than processed by hand to get fine and smooth surface. This plant is also used all the time by locals for sunburns and any other skin problem. It is very good and I always buy one when I go to Hawaii, because it is virtually impossible to get it anywhere else.

Kukui nuts are also combined with different see shells in jewelry creation.

I attended a class at Honolulu and leaned to make these:

raw kukui nuts

coloured kukuis

prepared strips for necklaces
it's easy, design yourself!
