Sea turtle bracelet in sterling silver is a latching bangle bracelet in the traditional St. Croix "island bracelet" style. The sea turtles that nest on our beaches have been around for many years before humans and as such, are a symbol in many cultures of longevity, endurance, patience, and wisdom. The sea turtle is a creature of two elements; land and sea and so she reflects an ability to adapt and flourish in any environment and feel “at home”, as the turtle carries her home on her back.
Turtle symbols are often worn as a totem or talisman of good luck, longevity, wisdom, balance, nurturing, patience, resilience, slowing down, and trusting your intuition and inner guide. Just like the ancient Petroglyph drawings, the swirl symbolizes balance, expanding awareness, the endless journey of life, and the constant progress and evolution of the Universe.
This sea turtle bracelet features our original swirl sea turtle design, originally hand carved from wax then cast in sterling silver. The turtle itself measures 5/8" across and the hard-sided, latching bangle opens and hooks into the loop on the turtle. One of FantaSea's very first designs, and inspired by our sea turtle conservation work in the US Virgin Islands, this bracelet comes in all wrist sizes including sizes for children.
To measure with a soft-sided measuring tape - wrap the tape around your wrist snugly to get your actual wrist measurement. If you prefer your bracelet to be more snug we recommend 1/4" larger than your actual wrist measurement and if you prefer a bit more room, 1/2" larger. These island-style bangles are made in an oval shape, the shape of your wrist, and are styled so that the design remains visible on top of your wrist without flipping around.
