New creative challenges

With one of my kiddos immersed in Polynesian dance classes and performing, as well as having lived on Maui and appreciating the beautiful culture, I decided to give a new venture a whirl ... and I am hooked. 

The lime green lei with honu (sea turtle) kukui nuts was my first attempt and I am thrilled with the result.  It will be given to a silent auction for a sea turtle charity that is near and dear to my heart.

This gorgeous lavender sparkle lei (I promise the sparkles are there - they are difficult to see) with hibiscus flower kukui nuts is the only other lei I've made thusfar, but I have plenty of supplies to make lots more.  I'm not artistically blessed, so it's nice to find something I feel I can do well and have an enjoyable time in the process.
