Pink Feather Lei

Pink represents the Island of Maui

I took a fun class today at
The Hale Ho 'ike 'ike
Bailey House, Wailuku, Hawaii

We spent the day learning how to make a traditional feather lei.
It is supposed to look like rose buds using just feathers.

We started at 9am and went to 2pm.
This is how far I got.
Each feather is stitched on by hand.
An experienced artist can make one lei in about a day.

Not too bad for my first try.
I am hoping the feathers start to lay down a bit more because they are kinda crazy right now!

It was a fun day.

Thanks for listening.
