The Sea Turtle is known as Honu in Hawaii. The sea turtles roamed the oceans since before the dinosaurs. They represent longevity , as they have been known to live up to 150 years. Hawaiian legends exalt the honu as the mythical mother and protector of all children, as well as a guide to voyagers. TheHawaiian word for turtle is "Honu" The tide pool back sea turtle pendant (which is my own invention, as most are known as green backs) has a very rich coloring in the Sea Turtles shell. We have be doing turtle since about 2000 when I got into working more colored glass and discovered other ways to color and obtain this great effect.
All 27 species of sea turtles are endangered, however some are close to being taken off of the list but need our help so that that may happen! How can we help! When you purchase this turtle from me I donate a portion of it to our favorite save the turtle fund. Save the Turtle. You may request that we donate to your favorite site. Just let us know what that is at the time of your purchase!
When people see your sea turtle you can point them our direction and we will continue to support the endangered turtles.
