Hi all!

Our honu bracelets were inspired by a combination of Lana's random acts of kindness projects which including a stamped penny drop in the summer, our love of Hawai'i, and the Abandoned Art Swap 2 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452836). 

The honu or sea turtle are one of many amakua or deified ancestral spirits and as such hold a very special place in the hearts of the Hawaiian people.  We are hoping that they remind the lucky recipients that we need to take care of our planet and be respectful of all living creatures.   




Lana and I had fun crafting them.  We can't wait to start sharing them while on vacation in Hawaii and in the DC metro reason this summer.

Hoping to visit the real honu while back home.  2 summers ago Lana went swimming with them on the Big Island.  Smiley

They are lovely - and I love the thoughtfulness behind it.  I hope you are including a card with what you wrote about with them.

Thanks Mistress Jennie!  Lana and I had fun working on it together.  Smiley

Hi Onyx!  I did make a little card to go with it.  Smiley  It talks about the honu being the navigator, the eternal link between man, the land, and the sea.  Smiley  It also has the DM website on it!  Smiley

Thank you guys!

The most wonderful thing has happened.  I posted this on the Art Abandonment page on Facebook and several of them contacted me about purchasing a few and we sold enough that we were able to purchase 1200+ pencils for Lana's DM Elf RAK that she does during the holidays.  Target has 24 pencils for $1 this week.  YAY!!!

Anyhow we've made more and will be sharing them soon.  Smiley
