This Sea Turtle charm was handmade from clay and fired with a matte Caribbean blue glaze with a metal loop to serve as a bail. The blue color of the glaze gives the impression of the sea turtle swimming in the sea.
Coin size, this ceramic charm measures 26mm by 28mm.
Sea turtles live all over the world, especially near tropical seas and oceans. Consequently, they are symbolically part of many cultures in their mythology. Sea turtles frequently represent the wisdom of old age, endurance, tirelessness, old souls, harmony, peace, longevity, grace, serenity and immortality. They lived so long that some ancient cultures believed they did not die unless hunted or killed in an accident. They are also seen as a sign of good fortune and that is why you see sea turtle amulets and sea turtle fetishes and sea turtle pendants in so many coastal regions.
