Sea turtles have been around for many years before humans and as such is 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.
This sea turtle pendant features our original swirl sea turtle design, originally hand carved from wax and then cast in solid sterling silver. The pendant measures 5/8" long, and has a hidden bail behind the flipper so she looks like she's swimming around your neck! One of FantaSea's very first designs, and inspired by our sea turtle conservation work in the US Virgin Islands, this turtle pendant comes on a lightweight (yet sturdy), 16", 18" or 20" sterling silver chain (you can also order pendant only).
