Turtle Earrings, Green Purple Blue Swarovski Handmade Beach Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with color-shifting beauty], the one of a kind TÓTI earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who loves turtles.  Wonderful beach earrings that are on the smaller side, they feature glowing vintage Czech glass turtles in a myriad of colors, sparkling Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.  The unique vintage turtle beads (from the 1960’s) were created with a base of dark green glass.  A “gold iris” mirror coating was applied which seems to radiate rich shades of purples, blues, greens and pinks, depending on the angle of the light.  As you can see, the turtles have great detail with raised bumps on the shell, a head and four legs.  Because the turtle beads are two sided, the earrings are eye-catching from any angle.   
To add plenty of sparkle to the earring design, faceted Swarovski crystal bicones in a dark blue called “dark indigo.”  One crystal sits just above each turtle’s head, separated by a small sterling silver bead.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with an additional dark indigo Swarovski crystal finishes the earrings beautifully.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique TÓTI earrings were created for the woman who loves wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry with a shimmering turtle design.  “Tòti” is Haiitian Creole for “turtle.”

Turtles are symbols of good fortune, longevity and patience.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us. 

The one of a kind TÓTI handmade earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
