Opihi (pronounced o-pi'hi) is the Hawaiian name given to the various species of limpets found only in Hawaii. Its use as a seafood delicacy as well as a food scraping utensil made the Opihi one of the most popular seashells of the ancient Hawaiians. The shell's extraordinary beauty, when ground and polished, possesses a beautiful sunburst design and a brilliant and reflective feature.
Using traditional methods handed down from ancient traditions, this hand-strung and hand-made keepsake is a beautiful example of the unique and artistic creativity the ancient Hawaiians have shared with the world. The beautiful varying hues and textures of the shells will surely bring attention to you. An exotic addition to your evening wear.
