"Namaka" means water Goddess in Hawaiian. Mermaids are matrons of enchantment, entreating sailors with beguiling beauty, grace and mesmerizing melodies. Seductive and charming, all those in contact with mermaids are subject to their persuasion.
When I first decided to leave my hustle and bustle city life behind and move to Hawaii's tropical paradise of Oahu about a year ago, I was mesmerized by all of the beautiful blues and greens that I could see everywhere I went. Needless to say I became inspired to create a headdress that embodied the colors of this magical land of Aloha. The headdress in these photos is one of the headdresses that I have made that have been inspired from the islands.
This beautiful piece of wearable art comes with 2 gorgeous 5 inch Nautilus shells purchased at a local shell stand on Oahu's North Shore and placed on each side of the headdress with beautiful rooster, peacock and pheasant feathers representing colors of Hawaii's beautiful aqua ocean and lush rainforests: green, brown, turquoise, blue and peacock feathers. It sits on a wire headband and has ties in the back. There are pieces of fishnet and brilliant fabrics that hang from the side and can be used to tie the headdress in the back so it can fit more securely. Rhinestones are scattered about this beautiful piece of wearable art. I also place tiny shells and sea glass that I have collected while beach combing the beautiful beaches of Oahu.
Photos do not do the details in exquisite piece justice! I have a video of it so that you can see it from different angles. If you would like to see it please message me.

I provide hair ties and step by step instructions along with a video on how to wear your mohawk. Once it's on - it's ON! In fact, they were designed to be able to withstand dust storms at Burning man! It is a piece that can literally be worn all day - I even slept in mine once. If you follow the instructions on how to wear it and really secure it in place(super tight hair ties, extra hair gel!!!), you should not have any problems with it falling off. I also can add an adjustable strap if you have little to no hair or would like the option at your request.
If there is no drop down option in the listing, just let me know in notes during checkout and I will add an adjustable strap to your mohawk.
