As we all know, life has its highs and lows. Without one, we could not appreciate the other. The lokai bracelet was created in 2013 by Steven Izen, who was going through a tough time and finding it difficult to weigh the challenges in his life with happiness. When he was a freshman at Cornell University, Steven found out his grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. He felt helpless, knowing he would have to sit back and watch his Papa’s mental faculties and body slowly deteriorate. He began to reflect on this heartbreaking news, and wondered how some parts of his life could feel so aligned, while others were so broken.
In trying to find a way to cope, Steven was drawn to the Earth’s natural sensibility of highs and lows, and was determined to create a tangible reminder to find balance — something that would encourage people to stay humble during life’s peaks and hopeful during its low points. Nearly three years later, the lokai bracelet was born. The name “lokai” was inspired by the Hawaiian word “lokahi,” which means “unity” and “to blend opposites.” Lokai refers to our unique pursuit of finding a mental balance.
The lokai bracelet is infused with elements sourced from the highest and lowest points on Earth: Water from
Mt. Everest is captured in the white ball, and mud from the Dead Sea is held in the black ball. They are placed at opposite ends of the bracelet linked with a string of clear beads, signifying that throughout life’s circular journey, your path is your own.
You may see successes in some areas of your life and setbacks in others. Wear your lokai to remember to strive for a balanced life and to enjoy your story along the way. After all, life is about the journey, not the destination.

Mix up your style with Ginger Snaps, the unique interchangeable jewelry featuring button-like charms that snap in and out of bracelets, rings, sandals, and handbags. Jewelry that houses one, three, or five Snaps has endless possibilities: cools greens and blues today, warm pinks and purples tomorrow. With hundreds of colors and styles to choose from, Ginger Snaps is reasonably priced jewelry that allows you to change colors and styles . . .in a Snap!
Ginger Snaps are silver plated and can be cleaned with a dry polishing cloth. While the manufacturer tells us that tarnishing may naturally occur over time, our experience over the past five years is that . . . tarnishing does not happen. To prolong the life of your jewelry, avoid using liquid jewelry cleaners (these commercial cleaners tend to strip the plating away, causing permanent damage). We suggest you do not submerse Ginger Snaps in water. Never wear Gingersnaps (or any other costume or fine jewelry) in a pool or spa.
