Cloisonne jewelry – Enamel Turtle Jewelry in Cloisonne set in 14k Gold

Turtle is a cloisonne jewelry piece created by Patsy Croft. It belongs to Ocean collection of amazing enamel jewelry with unique jewelry designs.

Sea Turtles are one of my favorite sea creatures and I burst out in a smile every time I see one.  Did you know that they have been around since the dinosaurs, but that now every species of sea turtle is on an endangered or vulnerable US Endangered Species Act List?  They are so critical to both our oceans and land, they are so precious to our Circle of Life, that I decided to commemorate them in my cloisonné jewelry work. This enamel turtle jewel was drawn in pen and ink, and applied in watercolors to the palette, bringing her to life as she glides in the ocean.  Taking my painting to my goldsmith studio, I prepped my metal and applied the 24k gold wires, creating the outline of the turtle.  Once done, I carefully placed my enamel grains in each cell, three at a time, deliberate to not overfill.  With several layers applied, the movement, depth and transition of colors from dark to light was discernible. I had my enamel jewelry sea turtle piece, in tranquil waters. I then set the jewel in 14k gold, creating a pendant to be worn close to the heart.  This unique jewelry design is one of a kind jewelry.  Being able to create custom enamel jewelry that brings awareness to the environment is one of my passions.  My other passion is our environment.  I have made a pledge to donate a portion of all my proceeds to Greenpeace, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, World Wildlife Fund and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  If you’d like more information on Greenpeace, you can go to this link:  http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/.  If you’d like more info on Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society, you can go to this link:  http://www.oceanfutures.org/about/jean-michel-cousteau.
