All creations are designed and made on Kauaʻi
The newest addition to our Lā'au O Hawai'i Collection. These earrings are made with local Kaua'i woods and Herb's mixture of resin colors. These earrings are handmade from beginning to end. Each is hand cut, shaped and polished to a one of a kind piece of Hawaiian wearable art.
Hawaiian Koa (Acacia) Wood of the Ali'i (Royalty). In old Hawai'i it was “kapu” or prohibited for anyone to possess koa wood except for the Hawaiian monarchs and the ali’i royalty class. After the death of King Kamehameha,the kapu system was abandoned, thus allowing all Hawaiians to possess koa wood. Koa trees have a natural life cycle of about 50-80 years due to the natural occurrence of rot and decay. Trees are not cut, only fallen trees are used for the instruments, furniture, home accessories and crafts we see today.
Banyan Tree (Ficus) The first tree was brought to Hawai'i in 1873. It was a gift from the missionaries of India. These giant, majestic trees have become symbols of historical importance as well as a place of many family picnics and fun.
Polū (blue)Our own mix of blue resin represents both the sky and sea. Polu is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, loyalty, wisdom and confidence.
