Sea turtles 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 as such 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.
These silver turtle earrings feature our swirled sea turtle design, originally hand carved from wax then cast in solid sterling silver. Each turtle measures 5/8″ long, and hang from sterling silver french wires. Dainty and comfortable, but also sturdy and a nice weight.
