Green Sea Turtle Pendant (small)

£190.00

The smooth carapace of the Green Sea Turtle, and the rich texture of its skin, makes it a joy to model. Hanging from it’s flipper, this piece attempts to capture the idea of motion as it gracefully moves through the water.

Cast in sterling silver, this pendant is a smaller version of my somewhat statement large turtle pendant. It is a solid model (not hollow) so has a good weight to it and is nicely complemented by my Green Sea Turtle Earrings.

Inspiration for my Green Sea Turtle

I made my original Green Sea Turtle Pendant, with matching earrings, as a commission to commemorate a 20th wedding anniversary. Throughout their happy marriage, the couple had had the honour of visiting their nesting beaches in the Turkish Mediterranean and swimming with them in the Gapalagos. My turtles proved to be a great addition to my collection and were much admired. However, the pendant being a large piece, I was asked by many turtle lovers whether I would consider making a small turtle pendant. One they could wear every day, rather than on more special occasions. I also have a friend who adores turtles but is very petite in build – so my large turtle would have looked more like a dinner plate on her!! I duly obliged – and she is quickly becoming my most popular turtle.

Turtles live all over the world, nest in over 80 countries, and live in the coastal areas of more than 140 countries. The green sea turtle is one of the largest hard-shelled sea turtles in the world. They are herbivores, which is unique, among sea turtles, feeding on mostly grasses and algae. It is this diet that gives their cartilage and fat – rather than their shells – a green hue.
