In the Far East, turtle was carved and worn as a talisman for power over all forms of bad magic.
The turtle's shell resembled a dome and was seen as a symbol of the dome of heaven, hence heavenly virtue.
Generally turtle is seen to represent: self-containment, creative source, earthiness, being grounded, longevity, protection, shelter, and a steady approach to life.
In dreams they are interpreted as patience, wisdom, or hiding something essential.
This stunning brass necklace with a beautiful Amethyst and Amazonite Pendant would make an ideal gift for someone special.
The long chain measures 85cm.

The Bird of Paradise was rumoured to have come from the heavenly realms, where it soared through paradise without ever touching the earth. In fact, most of the species are endemic to the forested highlands of New Guinea and nearby islands, but they can also be found in Indonesia and eastern Australia. The bird, and its legend, have travelled far afield and captured the imagination of people and cultures around the world. It is a testament to the extraordinary beauty of this winged vision.
