Sculptural Ola Bangle – Wai


Wear the Wai Ola Bangle alone, in multiples or mix and match with the other Ola Bangles. A stylish, classy finish to your outfit, this elegant bangle changes with each surface angle, like water does as it moves. Wai is symbolic of home, the bosom, the source.
“The simplest things are often the truest.” -Richard Bach

Wai (water)

Ola has many meanings in Hawaiian, among them are life, health, well-being; alive, living; heal, survive, thrive. Each design in the Ola Collection is inspired by something that sustained and helped the Hawaiians thrive.

Water symbolises the source, the bosom, life. In many cultures it reflects fertility, purity and wisdom. While fresh water is essential to plants, animals and people, to Hawaiians wai was more than just sustenance. As an island kingdom, water was life. Concerns over protecting and accessing water shaped social structures, created land divisions, and shaped religious beliefs. Kānāwai was followed – a rule of law that dictated the “equal sharing of water.”


One of a series of hand-carved bangles, the Sculptural Ola Bangles- Wai is symbolic of the essential element, water.
