This antique bronze turtle pendant was handcrafted in Ghana, Africa, using the 'lost wax casting' method. I purchased it nearly 20 years ago when I used to work in Virginia Beach and hemp jewelry was all the rage. And it is still very popular. Please realize that the casting process used to produce this pendant dates back to the 7th century in Africa. Even though I had fun making this piece, I never wore it. So I'm offering it to you.
Because of its slow movements and its ability to carry its protective house, the Turtle is regarded as intelligent and prudent. Because it can reach old age, it is assured great respect that is paid to elders. Because Turtles can live in water as well as on land, they are considered to be close friends of the God of Rain and Water Spirits. Turtles are also associated with the orisha Chango.
