My sea turtle necklace is my very own, hand carved design, and features genuine Dominican larimar gemstone set in a life-like sea turtle pendant. I sculpted and carved away at a chunk of wax to create this original design. It was my second design ever in my sea turtle collection and I am really proud of this turtle! A mold was made from my original wax sculptue, then the pendant was cast in sterling silver. The larimar pattern and color has an endless range and is beautiful as the turtle shell. I've worked with various organizations here in the caribbean focusing on sea turtle conservation, and these beautiful, mystical beings have inspired me in ways I can't even begin to explain. They have changed my life for the better, bring so much creativity to my life, and I'm thrilled to be able to share my original turtle designs with you. So if you're looking for a true piece of handcrafted artisan jewelry, this nautical and sea life inspired turtle totem necklace could be the one for you!

My turtle pendant measures approximately 1", and is a very hefty and nice weight in sterling silver. Definitely an heirloom quality piece of jewelry, meant to be passed on to future turtle loving generations. Comes with a 16" or 18" or 20" sterling silver chain or greek leather cord with sterling silver .925 clasp (convo me if you'd prefer the greek leather cord, as it's based on availability).

Each larimar will be unique, making your turtle necklace a one of a kind just for you! See the last photo for a sampling of variations in the Dominican blue larimar which I use. I only hand select top quality larimar in my jewelry, with beautiful color and unique patterning. I buy direct from the mines in the Dominican Republic, the only place in the world that this beautiful gemstone is found.

Larimar is said to have healing properties for those battling illness, and is also known as a worry stone. As someone who battles a chronic illness on a day to day basis, I actually find that holding this gemstone and rubbing the surface helps to relieve my anxiety. It's really all about the power of belief, but in my opinion, a little bit of magic can't hurt!

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.
