Maulele is the Hawaiian word for flotsam and jetsom, basically anything washed ashore by the ocean.
These Maulele Earrings are a modern take on the traditional styles of Niʻihau jewelry. Funny enough, making jewelry in this original style is how I got started making jewelry in the first place some 30 years ago.
