Advocate for the humane treatment of turtles, tortoises and their environments:
- NEVER BUY a turtle or tortoise from a pet shop as it increases demand from the wild.
- REPORT THE SALE of any turtle or tortoise of any kind less than four inches. This is illegal throughout the U.S.
- NEVER REMOVE turtles or tortoises from the wild unless they are sick or injured.
- EMERGENCY CARE If a tortoise is crossing a busy street, pick it up and send it in the same direction it was going – if you try to make it go back, it will turn right around again.
K Robins’ designs are hand carved in wax, and cast in sterling silver. Each sterling silver pendant comes on a black card with the name and symbolic meaning of the pendant. A 30” black satin cord is included so that your new pendant can be worn immediately as a necklace.
K Robins was born and raised in Virginia and resides there in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. An epiphany of sorts occurred around 1980 and I began to see life in a new way. While my young children played nicely upstairs I would steal away to my basement shop where I normally made furniture, cooking utensils and an assortment of other wooden things. Now to my amazement, out of the wood and sawdust, a series of female figurines was erupting. The original cherry, boxwood, rosewood and ebony symbols and figures have evolved into a line of silver pendants that includes nearly 100 designs.
Many of the jewelry designs come from my fascination with the language of symbols and how the art of different cultures and times echoes around the world.All cultures surround themselves with symbols of some sort and naturally pass them reverently from generation to generation. These symbols lift up and guide us through life’s interwoven cycles of birth, life, death and rebirth.
