    This is a 36-inch long, triple strand, Ni'ihau Shell Lei. My mom picked this up while vacationing with my dad in Kauai in 1969. The color of the shells is pinker than seen in these photos (I shot this outside; the daylight was apparently too much for my photo skills).

    Ni'ihau is the smallest inhabited island in Hawaii. It's also privately owned, which means to visit the place you have to take an organized tour, but you can't spend the night. The shell leis are a source of income for the people who live on the island, as is rent paid by the US Navy.
