My “Life on the Reef” collection of marine life jewelry art focuses on important, and in this case very familiar and well loved members of the tropical reef community. In the Hawai’ian culture, the Green Sea Turtle, lovingly called “Honu”, is a revered animal which symbolizes humility, peace, longevity and the spirit within. The ancient Hawai’ians even created the myth that the Hawai’ian islands themselves were mounted to a giant Honu’s shell and the movement of the sun, stars and moon in the sky was actually caused by the giant Honu swimming beneath them.

I created this sculpture to celebrate this important marine animal and the Hawai’ian’s reverence for it, and I call it “Spirit Honu”. After much study of ancient Hawai’ian and Polynesian Honu art and mythology, I sculpted the Spirit Honu to be an exotic form and integrated stylized ancient Polynesian tattoo art in a spiraling wave pattern to represent the spirit within as well as our profound and crucial relationship with the sea.


The jewelry photographed is the actual piece you are purchasing. I strive to create an individual character in these fine pieces and I have personally hand signed it’s back after I completed all metalsmithing, gem cutting, gem setting and finishing. I create and include a genuine Certificate of Authenticity with this original jewelry art piece, which you will want to keep with your other valuable original artwork certificates.
