Keep the ocean close to your heart all year long with our adjustable Kai Strand™ Necklaces. Dainty, surf-tumbled sea glass pendants - known as "Mermaid Tears" - with mini triangle jump rings on waterproof cords in coffee, mocha, or bronze.
These versatile pieces can be worn as any-length adjustable necklaces to 30", and as a choker or bolo style, with beautiful back strands (back strands adjust with necklace - shorter necklace, longer back strands, longer necklace, shorter back strands:). They can also be worn as a bracelet or anklet, although they fit best as a neck piece.
Each mermaid tear is totally unique with natural, organic shapes formed by the ocean. No two pieces are alike making each necklace truly one-of-a-kind.
Choose your sea glass color + metal choice from the drop down menu, then select cord color after adding to cart. Coffee cord is the darkest brown, mocha cord is a soft brown/grey, and bronze cord is a tannish gold (see last photo for cord comparison).
Turquoises / Teals are available for limited time while we have stock - choose from the drop down menu as well. For other rare colors, contact us for a custom order.
Each piece is meticulously drilled under water, handmade to order with the Spirit of Aloha, and beautifully packaged in sea-themed linen bags. They make a beautiful gift! Ships within one week.

Our products are handmade from found objects which are recycled, repurposed, and upcycled. We use genuine surf-tumbled sea glass (never altered) which we personally find on Oahu and in Northern California, and which we source from trusted vendors in the Caribbean and Japan.
Genuine surf tumbled sea glass is ocean tumbled for decades and considered a rare "found" object with natural imperfections. Many pieces are vintage or antique depending on the age of the glass. The value of genuine sea glass varies based on color rarity, size, quality, thickness and age of piece. Our prices vary accordingly.

Sea glass is known as a symbolic talisman for healing and transformation due to the extraordinary process by which ordinary glass becomes "sea glass". It has a zen-like quality as the ocean plays catalyst for an alchemy to occur with each piece of glass, like turning base metal into gold, or bringing an individual's unconscious to the light....(for more visit The Alchemy of Sea Glass )
