Josephine the Baby Sea Turtle Necklace
Can you see her struggling under the ocean waves trying to get to where her little soul is begging her to be? Hanging onto that rock with her front flippers, she looks out to where her forever home will be. Surrounded by seashells, seaweed, and the prettiest chunks of sea glass, she ventures on after her rest from fighting those humongous ocean waves. The pieces of Mother Nature's art surrounding her in this resin cabochon were all found treasures on the beach of Cape Cod. The sand below her fades into the ocean water. Real flakes of sterling silver were sprinkled into the resin as it was curing to bring even more sparkle to her home. The resin cabochon is prong held in the center of an ocean beach ecosystem. Lapping waves curl around the cab and within them are hidden treasures as well. Different types of sea grasses, seaweed, starfish, seashells, rocks, bubbles, and even the tiniest hand formed hermit crab with teensy claws. *click clack*
The miniature baby sea turtle is handmade from borosilicate glass by my daughter, Abigail Castagnaro. She is an amazingly talented miniature glass artist that brings animals to life with the glass that she melts! I set Josephine in this epoxy resin cabochon so she will forever be safe and with you on your adventures.
A beautifully textured piece of silver sea coral at the top of the pendant holds it onto an 18 inch long sterling silver necklace. The pedant itself measures a little over 3 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide.
Every element of this piece was made entirely by hand by melting, manipulating the silver while molten, and then carving away at it to create it's final shape. Each bubble placed by hand onto the waves giving them realistic flow and oxygenating life. The beach surrounding the stone has hidden elements that will have you finding something new every time you look at this necklace. A perfect piece of jewelry for those of us who love nature, the ocean, or the plight of the sea turtles.
This one of a kind necklace will be packaged up and mailed off to you within 3-5 business days.
