Restringing Services

Coconut Style Niihau Shell Lei

Ni'ihau shell leis are meant to be proudly worn but overtime damage can occur and popular styles change. As a service to the community we are now happy to offer restringing & restoration services for most Ni'ihau shell jewelry! With over a decade of practice in many of the traditional and modern tying styles we can work on all but the most complicated pieces. 

By holding a large inventory of both newly collected and vintage shells from Kaua'i, Oahu and Ni'ihau we can color match any missing shells. We can also lengthen or shorten a piece, add solid gold or silver clasps including cowry hook and eye clasps as well as safety chains.

Services we offer:

  • Restringing
  • Clasp Replacement
  • Shortening
  • Lengthening
  • Changing Styles
  • Adding New Shells
  • Matching Shells
  • Replacing Damaged or Missing Shells
  • Adding Safety Chain
  • Etc...

We want these shells to be worn and only charge a small fee to cover materials, insured shipping and our time. Contact Us for a quote or any questions! All proceeds will go toward the upkeep and expansion of this website & archive.
