Roaming both land and sea the long lived turtle,
keya carries the weight of the world on its back, embodying wisdom, longevity, fortitude and perseverance.
According to Northern Plains Indian beliefs, by wearing the turtle symbol you ask that you and your loved ones receive the same protection, good health and long life the shell gives the turtle.
Dangling at your ears are beautifully crafted turtles formed from sterling silver and set with pipestone inlay. Earrings measure 1/2 inch wide x 1 1/2 inch long and dangle from sterling ear wires.
