Painted Turtle Totem Round Handmade Porcelain Pendant
Painted turtles love to bask in the sun. As many as 50 have been seen basking on one log, stacked atop each other. Temperature determines a turtles sex: warmer temps produce female hatchlings, whereas cooler temps produce males. Painted turtles are very cold tolerant, swimming beneath the ice. Even inch-long hatchlings can survive being frozen. Sunlight maintains body temperature, eliminates skin parasites, and is essential for the synthesis of vitamin D3.
The unique making process of these porcelain pendants allows for more detail in designs than other mediums. These designs are fired into the clay at 1200 degrees, so they will not peel or wear off. Each piece is surprisingly lightweight.
Approx. Pendant size : 3.1 centimetre in diameter. Weight : 6 grams.
