Turtle Pendant was created based on a wonderful experience I had on Culebra Island.
We were on a anchorage and Turtles were swimming around our boat.
Turtles are wonderful creatures! Like dolphins, they make you happy each time when you see them.
Later, I was swimming with turtles and that is amazing!
They are so slowly, they don’t pay attention on you, they just go their own way, relaxing…
The turtle has a few predators, which gives it an innocent energy. This also increases its lifespan, and so holds the symbolic meaning for longevity in many cultures. Animal symbolism of the turtle includes: creation, patience, strength, longevity etc.
So, I made my own Turtle Pendant to remind me always on that wonderful experience.
