I had been saving this cute ceramic turtle for years hoping to find a good project to use him on. He was made for a beadwork challenge whose theme was "Tropical Holiday". It seemed ripe for a piece with a little dash of humor.

Tortuga combines bead weaving and bead embroidery techniques. Our friendly turtle meanders among blue glass "pools" which are surrounded by peyote stitch bezels and beaded fringe of Czech glass leaves and flowers. The dutch spiral strap ends in a button and loop closure.

This jewelry creation is a signed original and contains upcycled/recycled/repurposed elements. It is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.
