Goddess of the Surf



Birth Date: Pepeluali 21, 2017 (02-21-17)


Lucy inspires us to surrender to the waves of life with focus and balance, allowing them to safely carry us to our highest goals.

He'e Wahine I Ka Lani! 
Lucy is a Goddess in the Surf!
He'e Ana I Ka Lala, Ho'iana I Kamuku
Sliding across the face of a wave, 
returning to the curl.

Lucy's best friend and greatest teacher is the ocean.
When the surf is up, Lucy runs down to Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. She can’t wait to get into the ocean. Her heart dances with Hopupu (excitement) as she eagerly anticipates the challenges of the great waves.
Lucy loves the Pacific Ocean and the surf has been her greatest teacher, evoking deep respect and humbleness within her. She knows that every wave presents a challenge of going with its flow. Lucy watches the waves, feels them inside, and connects to their Mana (spiritual energy).
She flies along the sea on her Olo (surfboard), riding the waves with focus and balance. Lucy finds the perfect attitude between tension and flexibility and rides the great wave home. It is the very best feeling in the world.

Surfing is magical; it has become her way of life! Lucy is a Goddess in the surf!

Lucy and her Kuku (grandfather) made the Olo (surfboard) together. First they chose the right Hawaiian Wiliwili tree for the board. Before cutting the tree, they faced towards the sea and said a prayer of thanks for the wood they would use. They honored the spirit of the tree by burying a fish beneath it. Last Lucy and Kuku drew a big Hawaiian Honu (sea turtle) on the Olo. The Honu is Lucy's Aumakua (Guardian Spirit). Lucy is deeply connected with the ancient wisdom of the Turtle. The Hawaiian Honu represents long life, safety, peace, and good luck. Lucy always feels protected when she surfs because she knows that her Aumakua is watching over her.
The wooden Olo is Lucy’s most treasured possession. She always carries it with her, even when she goes to sleep.

Lucy’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed her blue and green bikini and crocheted matching green shoes. She wove a Lauhala hat to protect Lucy from the sun. Last Tutu lovingly put a fragrant Plumeria flower in her hair. All these things were Tutu’s and Kuku's sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to their beloved Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
Lucy is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. Her body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto her face. Lucy has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Lucy is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.


Lucy reflects the spiritual powers of the Hawaiian Waters.

Pamakani (Hibiscus), the Hula Dancer

Birth Date: Pepeluali 8, 2017 (02/08/17)

Aloha Mai
I come with love.

Pamakani's Hula honors the miracle of life.
Join her in a celebration of life’s joys and abundance!

Celebrating the glorious magnificence of life, Pamakani dances the ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula in harmony to the rhythm of her Ipu (gourd).
In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Pamakani's dance honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all of nature.
The sounds of Pamakani's Ipu enhance the rhythm and add excitement to her dance.

Watch her closely! Pamakani invites you to enter her sacred space so that your beauty can unfold like the precious Hibiscus blossoms she is named after.

Pamakani's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful movements of the Kahiko Hula.
Ipus grow on a vine. Tutu picked the most beautiful one for her beloved Mo'opuna (Granddaughter). She cleaned, polished and decorated it with a crystal.
Then Tutu blessed the Ipu with Hawaiian salt and special prayers. The Ipu is sacred now. It was created for Pamakani and only she is allowed to touch it. This was Tutu's sacred gift of Aloha (Love) and it became Pamakani's most treasured possession.


Tutu wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha into Pamakani's wrist, ankle and head feather leis. The Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine.
Tutu sewed a green and purple top and matching pants and wove a green grass skirt for Pamakani. Last Tutu adorned Pamakani's hair with a beautiful purple Hibiscus flower.


 Pamakani is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Pamakani has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Pamakani is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.

Pamakani’s Mana attunes us to the spirit of Hawaii.

Pele, Hawaiian Volcano Goddess


Pele offers her strength and passion to remind us that life’s fiery eruptions and emotional upheavals often clear the path for positive transformations.

Aloha e Pele! (Greetings, Pele!)
The Menehunes clap their hands, jumping up and down with excitement as soon as Pele emerges from the sacred Ohia forest.
Pele always brings the most fascinating news about the flaming spirit of Hawaii’s Volcano Goddess hurling fiery ribbons of lava down the mountain slopes, giving birth to new rock formations and land.


As a gift and blessing Pele offers you 
a flame of Kilauea Volcano in a black lava bowl. 
The flame embodies the light of spirit, knowledge and life. 

Gifted with a passionate spirit, little Menehune girl Pele was named after Hawaii’s Fire Goddess.

Pele’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into Pele's feather Haku (head lei). Tutu also sewed Pele’s red and black dress which reflects the lava flow down the mountain slope.
She crocheted red panties and matching shoes. All these things were Tutu's gifts of Aloha (Love) for her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).

 
Pele’s abundant red and black hair cascades down her back like the lava flow on the mountain slope.

 
Pele is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Pele has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Pele blesses you with her flame of Kilauea Volcano.
