"The Turtle" Agate Sky Walker
This is one of the coolest pieces we have ever wire wrapped!
Turtles are frequently depicted in popular culture as easygoing, patient, and wise creatures. Due to their long lifespan, slow movement, sturdiness, and wrinkled appearance, they are an emblem of longevity and stability in many cultures around the world. Turtles are regularly incorporated into human culture, with painters, photographers, poets, songwriters, and sculptors using them as subjects. They have an important role in mythologies around the world, and are often implicated in creation myths regarding the origin of the Earth.
When we first saw this it reminded us of a turtle working its way across the great vault sky - the heavens.
The tortoise is a symbol of wisdom, and is able to defend itself on its own. It personifies water, the moon, the Earth, time, immortality, and fertility. Creation is associated with the tortoise and it is also believed that the tortoise bears the burden of the whole world.
Wire wrapped in an open cosmic design in 925 sterling silver, this piece also comes with a 16" sterling silver matching chain.
What a cool way to say "your great" to the one you love - or wear it just because it looks awesome!
