Simple Sea Turtle Pendant

Simple Sea Turtle Pendant


I was inspired to make this design after touring the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail, North Carolina. The sea turtles are just awesome animals, so graceful in the water.

This sterling silver pendant was lovingly created entirely by hand, using an ancient technique called chasing and repousse. This 5000 year old technique uses small, specialized tools and a hammer to push and form the metal, either from the front of the piece or from behind. This is a time-intensive, meditative technique, which produces a unique result.

The pendant comes on a 19-inch delicate sterling silver figure-8 style chain which is finished with a lobster clasp.

Due to the handmade nature of this product, slight variations might occur.
