Lauhala literally translates to the leaves (lau) of the hala tree (Pandanus tectorius) in the Hawaiian language.  Once harvested, these leaves are carefully hand-processed into strips which are then plaited and woven together in intricate designs to form utilitarian and decorative items.  

For our Lauhala earrings, we back a narrow strip of lauhala with recycled silver, riveting it together into a delicate lightweight loop which dangles from solid Sterling silver earwires.  The result is a contemporary take on a traditional Hawaiian art form.

Since these earrings are made of natural material their size, color and texture may vary slightly.  Most earrings measure between 2 1/2 - 3" long x 1 1/4 - 1 1/2" wide.

Despite their silver backing, lauhala is delicate and care should be taken not to crush your earrings in storage or during wear.
