Turtle and Bead Necklaces All of our turtle necklaces have the same design, a 32-mm carved stone turtle at the bottom of a string of 4mm beads in matching colors. They come in a huge variety of natural colors in addition to the ones shown here (ask for details). These necklaces are assembled by our family, here in Colorado.
Symbolically, the turtle represents wisdom, long life or eternity in various cultures. Artistically, its shape lends itself beautifully to this design.
