Glimpse of the Sea Pendant by CatharsisJB Glimpse of the Sea Pendant by CatharsisJB
Available at my Etsy
----

Some of us are born to love the land, the waving grains and grasses growing and blowing in the gentle summer winds, soothing our ears and soul.

Some of us wish to be a part of the forest, aching to hear the rustle of leaves, feel the cool shady spots in deep, thick groups of tangled trees.

Some of us long to spend time with the sky, feeling the cool autumn breezes, chasing clouds and wishing at stars.

And then there are those of us who stand on the edge of the world, curling our toes into warm sands, listening to the crushing roar of the tides, and wanting to be a part of the world beneath our own.

This pendant is for you, those who miss the song of the sea.

----

The Glimpse of the Sea Pendant is made from a used watch casing which terribly deserved a new purpose.

As you look through the glass window, a family of three hand-painted "3-D" turtles (a larger and two smaller) swim through a purple-blue sea. One spiral shell, two pearly beads, and three sparkling crystals accent the reptiles.

The front of the watch casing is gold-toned, and in place of watch band connectors there are now shimmery blue and purple beads. There are also two beads in the "hanging hoop" at the top of the pendant. The glass of the pendant does have a small magnifying window which adds to the underwater effect.

Comes with a black suede lace cord which closes with a lobster-claw clasp.

This is so pretty. I like the use of the watch casing, that's cool. And the sea turtles kinda remind me of Finding Nemo. Lol, I re-watched that recently, so I sort of have that on the brain.
