Well… I really like this work, so much so that I started trying to find out who Kakiki was.
In doing that, I clicked the watch button on several Kakiki pieces on eBay thinking if they sold, I would have a better idea of their values. After a number of days, one of the sellers actually made contact and offered the piece she had at a hefty percentage off of the asking price…so now I’m waiting for it to arrive. :drooling_face:
I still haven’t found much info on Casa Kakiki and weather there ever was a person named Kakiki involved, or who was behind the whole thing. It would be great to find a list of the artist that were involved.

I agree. I started researching and then went back to work etc. etc. I also had an eBay seller approach me but that particular one still wanted $1500 just for the necklace. Needless to say I didn’t need it because I already had mine. And the bracelet. I got real lucky on that one. Are you going to post a picPicture of yours?

I wish it had the fluted beads like yours does!

That one you are getting is awesome! Like that second drop with the exposed claws. I can’t tell from that picture if the beads are handmade or not. I also can’t decide about my fluted ones. They are the only fluted beads I own and I think they are bench made but I’d like to know for sure.
I’ll be waiting to see your pictures! Congratulations!
