Description: White statement necklace featuring magnesite and a turtle Length: 20" Materials: magnesite, brass turtle, brass chain, gold plated large spring ring clasp Origin: Hand made in the USA at the Manic Trout studio in Austin, TX Inspired by: Slow Motion by LUSINE This turtle necklace featuring lovely magnesite makes a irresistible statement piece. Why wear turtles on your jewelry? Turtle totems are the symbol of wisdom. Turtle traits are: rampant fertility, support, security, protection, wisdom, strength and guidance. The turtle in this necklace is a vintage design stamped from brass. I chose to use brass for the design to continue the vintage vibe and intend for the material to tarnish over time for this reason. If you prefer to have it shiny, simply use a metal polish on the animal only, following the instructions on the polish. Ships ready for gift giving. Each piece of jewelry is packaged in it's own cello bag with the Manic Trout logo. Every order arrives in a silver box with a black tulle bow and wrapped in black tissue sealed with a logo sticker.
