The recently released World Turtle pendant has a unique feature: it is customizable and interchangeable. Switch between different enchanting worlds to personalize your World Turtle pendant. From waterfalls to winter scenes, coral reefs to blossoms, intricate worlds are artfully created inside the turtle’s geometric shell. The design allows light to shine through, refracting off the shell’s many facets.
These pendants take inspiration from Hindu, Chinese and Indigenous mythologies which tell of the world being found on the back of a turtle. The turtle seemed appropriate for this grand role due to its qualities: perseverance, longevity, and determination.
“We were completely inspired by these mythologies and knew we had to use them in our creations,” explains Secret Wood founder, Roman Wood. “There are so many beautiful landscapes on this Earth, the creative possibilities are endless.”
Much like Secret Wood’s rings, every piece is handmade and unique, ensuring a unique wearable experience. More turtle shell designs will be released in the future.
See more examples of the World Turtle on Secret Wood’s pre-order site. The pre-order for these pendants will run until October 18th, or until crafting capacity is reached.
