did you know that turtles, in ancient symbolism, represent creation, endurance, strength, stability,and a gentle innocence. They offer protection and good fortune, and are considered sacred in many cultures.
The mythical turtle is a creature of two elements; land and sea and as such she reflects an ability to adapt and flourish in any environment.
Those who bear the symbol of the turtle carry the responsibility of caring for, protecting, and nurturing others.
This lovely piece features a hand painted terrapin with a slightly abstract feel floating over a sage green backdrop. The turtle's scutes are individually and selectively painted different shades of green.
This pendant comes with an 18 inch black cotton corded necklace with a lobster clasp closure.
