Hi, I’m Amy Wakingwolf - artist, shaman and ocean activist. I created The Honu Collection to connect people just like you to the healing power of the ocean whilst helping to protect Hawaii’s precious honu.
My other great love was water and as a longtime volunteer and activist, I’m committed to protecting Hawaii’s oceans - especially its sea turtles. When these passions aligned, The Honu Collection was born, merging fire, water, and nature’s power to heal in beautiful bespoke jewelry pieces.
You’ll find me in my jungle studio crafting pieces and experimenting with new ways of capturing the colours and healing lessons of the ocean. I’m so happy that, through my jewelry, I’m able to connect people to the revitalising energy and precious memories of the sea - all while protecting Hawaii’s precious honu, who have offered me transformational healing lessons about gratitude, trust, creativity and love.
Because they’re handcrafted to order, each honu shell is slightly different with its own pattern of colours, bubbles and islands. To honour your piece as a unique work of art, each one is engraved with the artist’s signature and a unique number. To connect with my international ohana (family) of honu collectors, I started a YouTube series, ‘Collector’s Corner’, where you can follow my new work as an artist and activist and be the first to know about new colour stories and designs.
Over the years, my clients have celebrated graduations, marriages, new children and new careers with Honus from my collection. They’ve even mourned lost loved ones on their healing journey with my Peaceful Transitions pieces. Every order is custom made with a special meaning behind it. What that meaning is, is up to you.
