As pictured. It's super cute on, my only disappointment was that the ring wasn't longer...the ends kinda dig into my toe a little but with some maneuvering it's fine.
Elegant and Distinctive Handcrafted Jewelry- It's All in a Name
I have been obsessed with jewelry and fashion since I was a child. I was fiercely independent as a child (and still am) so I was determined to be unique so I started making my own jewelry and clothing accessories in grade school. That continued through high school and college- I even made my prom dresses. But then I got my first "real job" as a Project Manager. My free time was quickly replaced by work and travel for work and I felt like I lost my creative edge.
Every year, I would go on a primitive camping trip with my Dad, where I disconnected my phone and my laptop for almost 2 weeks. It was my time to make jewelry, read, and relax- get back to my creative side. At my annual primitive camping trip in 2004, I was given the name AmberTortoise in a Native American inspired naming ceremony.
To me, being given this name represented a new chapter of my life- the beginning of an exciting journey that could be anything I wanted it to be... and what I I wanted was to transition out of my career in the corporate environment to pursuing my passion and lifelong dream of being a jewelry designer.
What had been a hobby up to that point quickly became an obsession, then a business, and now my life... and I couldn't be happier! AmberTortoise seemed like the perfect name for my jewelry boutique.
I hope you love the jewelry you find here as much as I love designing or creating every single piece.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Most of my pieces are one of a kind creations but I do offer a small line of limited edition pieces as well. My goal is to create beautiful, unique, timeless jewelry which reflects the personality and characteristics of the individual who wears it! Any piece can be resized free of charge and all pieces carry a satisfaction guarantee.
ATC jewelry is also available for purchase at the following locations across CT- The Silver Circle Gallery in Putnam, Peddler's Post in Storrs, the Jones Winery Gift Shop in Shelton and numerous fine art and craft fairs- visit www.ambertortoisecreations.com for more details.

Refunds and Exchanges
Also, keep in mind that adjustments to length can always be made for free, before or after purchase. If you realize an adjustment is needed after you receive your item, simply send it back and I will make the adjustment. You are only responsible for the shipping charges.
