Tribal Turtle Necklace by ChaosFay Tribal Turtle Necklace by ChaosFay
*There have been requests that I make looser pieces, so here ya go! One of many to come!*

This simple but elegant piece has been a project in waiting for me. The multicolored beads were the inspiration behind it, but I had no pendant or idea what to make. I just kept thinking "turtles" because the pattern on the beads looks like a turtle shell to me. Then I got this pendant in a random batch of pendants I ordered. Personally I think it looks like a tribal turtle pendant, and it's made from ceramic. The necklace was finally brought forth when I saw this. The beads, colors, and pendant were so perfect! I didn't want to make a choker though. Instead I made this loose necklace.

The necklace has glass pearls in a warm brown color to represent the beach as well as the pearls found in clams in the sea. The glass green glass chips are representative of how life found near the shoreline, and the turtle shell patterned beads are the inspiration behind it all. I chose dark and light green cords to represent kelp/seaweed and the brown to represent the sands. The looseness of it all is like the sea itself...it flows, moves, and breathes.

From top of necklace to bottom of pendant: 11 in/28 cm
From end to end: 19.5 in/49.5 cm

The matching braclet/anklet can be found here: [link]

**The cords I used are made of cotton, not hemp.**

I like the way you did the actual necklace part, you should create more in this style sometime. Maybe like a fairy or dragon or wolf-like one....
