Orange and Sunshine Yellow Lei

This Lei is named: Orchid Lei.  It is made for my God Daughter in her favorite colors. The ribbon size used for this lei is 5/8" wide except for the "spikes" which are 1/8" wide ombre green color.  This lei has a spiral effect. Orange and Yellow colors used for this lei.  There is a combination of sheer and solid satin. Finished lei length is 42" long.  

If you wish to make one for a special event, instructions can be found when you visit the island of Hawaii (Oahu) - refer to the name of this lei for instructions.  Check out the retail store and schedule lessons at U'I Mau A Mau LLC.  They do have a website: There are many types of lei samples on their site but in person hands on instructions are a must in order to complete the first lei.  But if you can't make it to the Island and live on the West Coast, contact  Chris Tanizawa at for FREE lei making classes in Union City, California. She has various lei kits for purchase and has a schedule for her classes but may not have this specific lei style.
 A closer look:
 A closer look at the single row: see the yellow row that is "twisting" on the lei.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a crafty day!
