This is a wonderful Sea Turtle Pendant sporting a lovely carved Labradorite for a shell. Hand crafted in my studio it is waiting to swim home to you! It hangs on a deep green silk wrapped cord at 18". The focal measures 2" in L by 2" W.

Do you know that copper is a wellness metal? It is amazing in all its benefits. Copper is known as a Magic Metal! and is believed to have healing properties. Copper is allegedly a strong conductor of energy, and an aid for exhaustion. This makes sense as it is used for electrical wiring. Copper is also supposed to detoxify the body, drawing the toxins from your system through the skin where the copper is worn. These therapeutic properties are evidenced by oxidation, turning your skin green when the piece is not sealed. I know if I eat clean and wear copper this does not happen. However if I eat a lot of carbs and sugar I will turn green, so use it as a guide to what your body is trying to tell you. I have been told by countless customers, that it does indeed relieve arthritis pain, and tried this myself when my wrist was hurting from overuse. The pain was gone inside an hour when it had hurt for several days.. Recently it has been discovered that most germs cannot live for more than five minutes on copper versus 72+hours on stainless steel! If a bracelet turns your skin green and you wish to stop that, simply seal the inside/back of the piece with hairspray, and let dry. When you wish to detox, wipe the hairspray away with a damp cloth.
It is a beautiful piece, created for that special someone. I hope you love it-Christine
