This pendant speaks volumes for those who are called to the sea. The sparkling blue topaz, swimming sea turtle, and glistening moonstone create a seascape that can be carried with you wherever you go.
Sea turtles spend most of their lives in the water. They migrate long distances to feed, sometimes crossing an entire ocean! Sea turtles are known to eat, sleep, and rest throughout the day - one of the many behaviors that gives sea turtles a reputation of tranquility.
This elegant pendant features a sea turtle hand carved from ancient walrus ivory, set in sterling silver. The fossilized walrus tusk ivory is from an island in the Bering Sea called St. Lawrence Island. The native Yupik have exclusive rights to gather and sell this finite material, which is an important part of their local economy and is valued world-wide for its use in fine jewelry. Fossilized walrus ivory takes on a range of tones from cream to deep cocoa, depending on the minerals surrounding it in the soil.
