"He‘e nalu" literally means "wave sliding" or surfing. Whether you took a surfing lesson and rode some waves or just enjoy watching Hawaii's watermen cutting up the swells, this bead captures the ancient sport reserved only for the ali‘i (kings)
Glass Bead | He‘e Nalu - Blue
- Our beads featuring Hawaiian words and images are designed here in our studio and made exclusively for Charms of Aloha by an outside vendor. The words and images are created using a special technique of sandblasting through one layer of glass, exposing another color underneath. A clear layer is then wrapped over it, completing the bead. They have sterling silver grommets and fit most charm bead bracelets.
