This green sea turtle pendant was made with Amazon nite coloring in its shell.
It was inspired by the movie "The Turtle". Although this documentary movie had a hawk bill turtle in it. Howerver I opted for the Green back turtles. I had found the green backs while searching on line. Its always interesting where inspiration comes from.
In Hawaiian the word for turtle is "Honu"
It is interesting where inspiration comes from as my son Keith who swam with the "Honu" or turtles in Hawaii. He went there to find new galleries that would represent our work. Our first order was from a Gallery called "Nohea" which means handsome or pretty. On her order form was the word "Honu" or turtle.
Thank also to Nohea Gallery<
