Haku Lei

I have been in love with haku lei since I came to the islands They are made by wrapping instead of threading flowers on a long needle. While on the Big Island, Carol showed me how to gather, prepare, and wrap the flowers and other plant parts to create a beautiful lei. Mine lacks the finesse and fullness of some, but I am proud of my first attempt. This is something very special that Carol shared with me, and I wanted to share it with you.

Wow! You've got a great Kumu, Miki! Your haku lei looks absolutely lovely! The more you create, the easier it will be for you.
