That is my Hawaiian Bracelet made by a prominent jeweler in Hawaii, and it's my "given Hawaiian" name.
When you turn 16 you are considered now an adult in the community and you are given a name by a relative or close family friend. Your given name always says something about you.
My name is :
The favorite flower lei that brings the family together
My name nearly wraps completely around my bracelet.
My "Auntie" Clara gave me my name, she was a very close family friend, you may know her better as "Hilo Hattie
", a very famous entertainer.
My parents gave me my bracelet when I graduated from High School, which is another tradition.
On my 30th birthday, I bought myself another Hawaiian Bracelet with my English name on it. Many women in Hawaii wear several bracelets at one time; each with one of their children's name's.
I never take mine off.
