Lei Kūpeʻe Necklace

Regular price $180.00

Kūpeʻe get their name from the phrase, “Kū i ka pō peʻe i ka lā, stand in the night hide during the day." This is in reference to their nocturnal nature; kūpeʻe are very elusive as they can only be found and picked under a certain moon phase at a certain time when the tide pulls back. The patterns on their glossy shell differ from island to island. This necklace, strung on 14k gold filled chain, holds 15 hand-picked Molokaʻi shells.
