Green Sea Turtle Pendant (large)

£340.00

The smooth carapace of the Green Sea Turtle, and the rich texture of their skin, makes them a joy to model.

This statement piece attempts to capture the grace with which these majestic creatures glide through the water. I wear mine on a long 24″ chain but it looks equally stunning on a shorter chain.

Inspiration for the Green Sea Turtle…

The Green Sea Turtle Pendant, together with matching turtle earrings, was commissioned to commemorate a 20th wedding anniversary – for this couple, the “serene, yet stately” sea turtle held a special place in their hearts, bringing back memories of happy holidays and inspiring experiences. Here is it in their own words:

What my customers say:

“He/she/it/they arrived! All safe and sound. Thank you so much! I’ve only had a quick peek at them (in the loo!) but they look better than I imagined they could. Really fantastic. I’m very confident [she] is going to love them. Sorry about picking your busiest time of year. Next time I’ll try and give you more notice. I’m happy that you seem to have enjoyed making them too. I was a bit nervous suggesting something to you as I guess artists usually discover their own inspiration for the next piece.

Why did I pick the turtle? There are a lot of them in the Turkish Mediterranean waters and they nest on a lot of the beaches we’ve visited in southern Turkey. We saw them from boat trips on our first and subsequent holidays together and [she] is always excited to see them.

They are certainly one of her favourite animals. Plus I find them a serene yet stately animal to watch. I was lucky enough to swim in a pool with up to 100 of them out in Galapagos once. Rarely have I felt more relaxed and content with my lot, if you get what I mean? …”
