This collection is created for the protection of my beloved tribe. For me, I made my mermaids armour when I was at my most vulnerable.
There is an ancient myth of a young Hawaiian warrior who emerged from the choppy blue waters, a battle with a sea god, triumphant, and wearing a shark tooth around his neck. It is often told that the ancient Hawaiians wore shark’s teeth jewellery to keep the sea dangers at bay. Kings and queens wore them as adornments, symbolic of strength and power.
When I admire this collection, I remember the strength and power that these big sea creatures hold and how we too can hold that same power within us. I would channel this energy to conquer my fears. These pieces are to be worn as your personal armour, like they have been mine.
