How the loon got his necklace.
One day by the shoreline Nana’b’oozoo or Nanabush was making a necklace out of shells. He heard a group of loons singing, at this time loons gathered in groups as do the Canadian geese. He called out to them to come and sing for him, but they were too afraid. Then all of a sudden a little brave loon popped up in front of the shoreline. Nana’b'oozoo asked the little loon”are you not afraid?’ “Nope” said the loon, then began to sing. So Nana’b'oozoo laid the new necklace he had made upon the back of this loon for it’s courage and song. The loon proudly displayed it’s new gift, but the others were jealous and chased after the small loon, but he was too agile. Nana’b'oozoo noticing this, called the loon over once more and as a symbol of courage for standing out from the group, made these markings permanent for him and all his descendants as well.

Bonnie Optical frames
Beautiful, lightweight but sturdy frames. My optometrist was impressed with the design and the quality. The loons are lovely and the purple is vibrant enough without being garish.
