The Keeper is the one between two worlds, earth and water, the turtle. A beautifully intricate cast turtle spine has been formed into an elegant ring cast in bronze with an 18kt gold plating.
In the Celtic history and lore the turtle is known as the keeper to the doors of the faerie realm; thus I chose The Keeper. Turtles sense vibrations through water and through their skin and shell, they are amazing survivors; with very good hearing and sense of smell. In the Far East the shell of a turtle is the symbol of heaven and the square underside a symbol of earth. The turtle is also one of the oldest reptiles and has one of the most ancient mythologies.
Turtles were not harmed in the process of making The Keeper series, my father found the shell on his property. No animals are ever harmed in my jewellery making process. In addition, a yearly contribution is made to The Center for Biological Diversity (non profit protection group) in the name of protecting the habitat and wildlife of our earth.
The Turtle spine ring is adjustable and is 2.54 centimeters in length and width and varies depending on adjustment.
Bronze with 18kt gold plating.
