    ABOUT THIS PROJECT 

    The World Turtle pendant is a customizable and interchangeable turtle necklace. Each pendant is made with a combination of durable 925 sterling silver for the base and geometric wood and resin form for the turtle shell. Powerful magnets are integrated in the design and connect the shell with the base. Add different shells to your collection to create unique and changeable looks!

    All World Turtle pendants are hand crafted in our Vancouver studio. Pendants include a 20” sterling silver chain. 

    WHAT INSPIRED US

    Throughout history, many myths, legends, and theories have come into play regarding the origin of the world. One of these includes what is known as World Turtle. Seen primarily in Hindu, Chinese and Indigenous mythology, they believe that the world is found on the back of a turtle. The turtle was seen as possessing many qualities appropriate for this grand role: perseverance, longevity, and determination. Turtles are also continuously moving, much like life and time. We found this idea very intriguing and it inspired us to create our World Turtle pendant. We have taken our miniature natural worlds and have placed it on the back of a beautifully abstracted turtle form - a Secret Wood World Turtle.  

    THE MANY WORLDS OF SECRET WOOD

    There are so many beautiful aspects of the natural world to take inspiration from. Much like our rings, the shell is inspired by both Vancouver and Canada. A blend of ethereal fantasy elements grounded on Canadian natural landscapes shapes the content of our creations.

    We are offering 11 different turtle shells all inspired by the natural world. Find a shell that reflects your unique style and personality.

    CAN I MAKE A CUSTOM DESIGN?

    We always strive to create the perfect piece for you. If you have a special request for your order, we will do our best to accommodate.

    While we cannot change the overall design of the piece (such as making the green auroras in Aurora Borealis purple or adding a dolphin to Coral Reef), we are able to modify existing elements (such as having more fuchsia than blue in Eternal Supernova or less wind in Waltz of the Winds!).

    Please get in touch with us if you have a special request.

    WHAT KIND OF SILVER DO YOU USE?

    We use a durable 925 sterling silver in all our silver jewellery. This material is an extremely durable alloyed metal. Our sterling silver contains no traces of nickel or lead.
    This material is often a great option for people with metal sensitivities!

     

    WHAT IS THE TURTLE PENDANT MADE OF? HOW IS IT MADE? 

    Our World Turtle pendants are made of a 925 sterling silver base and wood and resin turtle shell. Some shells include additional elements such as blossoms and gold leaf. Powerful magnets are integrated in the design allowing all turtle shells to be interchangeable.
    All pendants include a 20” sterling silver chain. All our pendants are handmade by our craftsmen.
    Each turtles shell is unique and one of a kind and showcase an enchanting secret world.

    DO YOU SHIP TO MY COUNTRY?

    We ship worldwide. Shipping cost is calculated at checkout.

    Pendant planning begins!

    January 9th 2017

    Our designers and craftsmen have been sketching and creating concept pendant designs. So many possible directions this pendant can take. The challenge is creating a design that is both reflective of Secret Wood and the rings we have created but is also unique from what is currently available for sale.

    Lots of work ahead.

    Turtle concept created

    March 10th 2017

    After many hours, days, weeks, and months of concept work, an exciting design has been created!

    Our team began researching different mythologies of the world for inspiration and came across the World Turtle. Running with this concept, we are creating different forms our turtle can take.

    I like… turtles

    April 10th 2017

    Turtles, turtles, everywhere!

    We have been experimenting with different materials, sizes and shapes. Our studio is swimming in all the different concept designs!

    First Batch of pendants have been made!

    May 17th 2017

    One of the things we love most about our rings is how different designs can be reflective of different personalities. We want to give people the ability customize their pendant depending on what they want at that time. Maybe a different design for each season? Or different elements of the Earth?

    Whatever you’re in the mood for, we want to have a pendant to reflect that!

    How to make them interchangeable?

    June 5th 2017

    It’s official, we are creating customizable pendants! But how can we create interchangeable shells without affecting the integrity of the design? We’ve been playing around with different ideas and hope to come up with the perfect solution soon!
