The tortoise totem symbolizes longevity, simplicity, and slowing down enough to really pay attention.

Tortoises symbolize simplicity, they carry their shells/homes on their back and have all they need with them. They remind us of the importance of making good use of what we have and embracing simple abundance.

It is hand sculpted, painted and is embellished 22k gold & white gold.
Size: 4″ W x 1.5″ h



This is a one of a kind, handmade ceramic figurine. The process to making ceramics not only takes time but is quite a breathtaking process!

1) The clay is hand sculpted into the figurine (so no figurine will ever be exactly alike) and then let dry for a couple of days to dry out all of the moisture
2) Bisque fired at approximately 1800 degrees F. This hardens the totem making it hard and durable
3) The glazing is where the real enchantment happens. This is where colors are added giving the totem it's character. Then it is fired again at a lower temperature
4) Finally this is the step where any (REAL 22k) gold/white gold accents are applied and then fired one last time


The totem comes carefully and lovingly packaged with a gift box ready for gifting!
Totem Size: Approx. 1.75"X 1.25"
