Up for your consideration is some of my hand-made jewelry done in turtle/tortoise motifs. It frustrates me that my camera just does not capture the colors and shimmer of these pieces.

Shipping is $5 for as many pieces of jewelry as you would like. Delivery time is 2-4 days. For orders including bracelets and earrings, please allow up to one week handling time as I make those items to order.

Custom pieces on request are also available, I have a wide array of findings, Swarovski, and other beads. For custom designs, please allow up to 10 days handling time. Typically it does not take me that long to make the jewelry, but this close to the holidays, please keep in mind that it is a possibility.

Paypal is the only accepted payment. I may also accept USPS money order, but I make that decision on a case to case basis.

All payments go directly into my tortoise acquisition fund, lol ;)

Item #1 -

Carved howlite stone tortoise, on sterling silver chain with Bali silver and Swarovski crystal accents in white and smoke color. Closes with a Bali silver leaf motif toggle. (I have two of these available.)

The price for this necklace is $25. Add a matching bracelet for an additional $10, and/or add matching earrings for $8. Earrings are available with posts or french wires. When ordering a full set (necklace, bracelet, and earrings) take $3 off the total price.

Item #2 - SOLD

Green Czechloslavakian glass turtles accented with genuine turquoise and Bali silver, on a sterling silver chain.

Item #3 -

Sterling silver bracelet with alpaca silver turtle charms. Toggle clasp makes it easy to close - 7 1/2" (I can shorten to buyer specifications on request. I can also make larger versions for bracelets and anklets.)

The price for this bracelet is $6. Anklets are $9.

Item #4

Carved jasper stone tortoise. This is my FAVORITE out of this bunch, I almost want to keep it! It is on sterling silver chain, with clear Swarovski crystal and GENUINE freshwater pearl accents. (I have an identical blue sandstone tortoise that I will be creating with very soon!)

Thanks for the interest, guys ;)

Shipping is a flat $5. Payment either by Paypal of USPS money order (see first post.)

Dawn, I can custom make something to fit. Let me know what colors to use, and I can use my own 10 year old for a size model, lol.

Renee, #6 is still available ;)

You can google on how to make a light box. It's super easy and cheap. Especially with all the clamp lights you may have around. You can choose white or black posterboard to get started. Your pieces will look gorgeous! I may try one just for my tortoise.

I can absolutely ship internationally, shipping is just $2 more.

Steph, I can make that particular bracelet to any size that you would like.

As far as Etsy, I started to sign up once, but they wanted a credit card, and that is something that I never have had and never will have. Maybe one of these days I will get a prepay and set it up that way.

And thanks for the compliments ;)

Thanks ;)

I have some very cute little antique brass turtles that have a daisy engraved on the shell, with matching chain and findings also. I will try to get pictures but it is proving difficult to get pics uploaded since I decided to shatter the LCD screen on my laptop

Hi again Kristina,

Sorry. You do beautiful work.... I hadn't looked back at this post in a bit. Thanks for the offer. I will definitely have to have you make something for my friends daughter. Not sure what color yet.... probably purple.
I also REALLY REALLY like the sound of the antique brass turtles with the daisies on their backs..... :) My email and the name of my painting company is Dawns Daisies. Gotta love it. :) I would love something made with those if you have enough. I will have to wait for another week though. This payday has been a bit tight. Thanks!

Dawn
