|Kai Mana Orbs are created from coconut shells & shards that I find on the beach
in Hawaii. The shapes are wonderfully random and very inspiring. After
cleaning and drying them, I take them into the studio and embellish with
found objects, sea shells, crystals and beads.
I call them Kai Mana Orbs because the name for the sea in Hawaiian is "Kai"....the word for power is "Mana". "Orb" is defined as a noun, as a celestial body... and as a verb, to encircle or enclose. These coconut shards are powerful in the vibrations of nature that they hold and that they contain. The power of the Palm Tree, strong against the trade winds, as it bends and never breaks. The power of the Sea....with thunderous winter waves, gentle summer seas....the Kai Mana Orbs carry this power...a celestial orb on the earth's shore.
