Types of Turtle
So far I have purchased two different pendants from Honu and absolutely adore them both!
The two necklaces above are the; Honu cut out necklace and the sterling silver Earth necklace.
I will definitely be returning to purchase some new designs and currently have my eye on the silver tide ring and the Honu coin pendant.
If you're looking for a gift for someone else or some new dainty jewellery pieces for yourself (that help a wonderful cause) then I highly recommend trying Honu!
