Moon Snail Bracelet for Luna
Luna was carved out of Western Red Cedar scrap wood from Haida Gwaii. Our favourite photographer visited the Islands last month and he came home with a little engraved “Ear cuff”, which he thought would make an excellent Hitty bracelet for Tansy or Sitka…
…but Tansy and Sitka each have a pair of lovely copper bracelets already!
So I decided to dig out my cedar telephone pole scrap, and carved a doll named Luna…
…so she could wear the bracelet, which has a moon snail design.
This might be the first time I have made, and named a doll to fit a piece of jewellery!
Oh, I love your dolls! They are so well done!
Thank you so much I really love to make them!
How wonderful for Luna. She was “born” to receive a special gift.
We love your bracelets, girls.

She was! The three of them (Tansy, Sitka and Luna) are the only Hittys with bracelets, so far…but we like the way they look! I think the “London Doll” who wrote a diary had a bracelet with her name engraved on it.
Luna appears to be another very lovely companion to the Hitty Cupboard on Quimper Street. How marvelous that that little “bracelet” came your way which gave entrance to Luna.
I never know where the inspiration is going to spring from! Luna is a sweetheart, and making friends in the cupboard. She, Tansy and Sitka have a lot to chat about!
I love that you have given her a dress that looks like a starry night sky. Perfect for her name.
I didn’t realise that when I picked it out for her – just knew it looked right!
So wonderful that inspiration can come from such unexpected sources! Luna is a treasure and kudos to the Quimper Hittys’ favorite photographer for bringing home that tiny piece of jewelry that led to her creation. Thanks so much for sharing her delightful story with us!
The “bracelet” was unexpected and delightful! It is fun to have an aider and abetter in the Quimper Hitty realm!
lovely Haida Gwaii girls and a very supportive aider and abetter with a good eye for all things Hitty-ish.
Without the gimlet eye and willing hands my life would be less rich, and a few of the Hittys lives wouldn’t even exist!
that is the perfect bracelet for your sweet girl. love the photos.
It is perfect isn’t it! I was so amused by the gift, and inspired to make my lovely Red Cedar doll specially to wear it!
I’m so impressed by the lovely Luna. She is a very well done, quality through and through. I love the addition of white lace – perfect. Thanks for sharing.
