Handmade Turtle Stud Earrings


Handmade stud earrings are individually silver plated and diamond cut on copper in Southwest Native American jewelry turtle earrings design. The symbol turtle holds a lot of mythological significance in the Native American culture. The legend has it that when the whole world was under water, a turtle named Earth Diver went to the bottom of the ocean and brought a ball of mud that had magical powers. This mud was then used by the Creator to make the hills, mountains and other landforms. Since that time the turtle symbol has been associated with Mother Earth.
