    This modern pendant necklace and matching earrings was inspired by the exquisite sea turtle and tortoise illustrations by the 19th century German biologist Ernst Haeckel, whose drawings to this day are remarkable. Archipelago, the pendant necklace, is imbued with inspiration from the Geometric Tortoise illustration by Haeckel. This species is currently endangered and one of the rarest tortoises in the world.

    The geometric pendant is a partial formation of an Archimedes sphere using bezeled square stones and beaded triangles to create a three-dimensional shell that is surprisingly lightweight because of the hollow interior. Embellishing the edge of the shell are beaded equilateral triangles. The pendant features cylinder beads, glittering square stones, colored 3mm beads and hangs by a hidden bale.

    The kit includes:

    • 3 colors of 11/0 Japanese cylinder beads
    • 1 color of 15/0 Japanese seed beads
    • 1 color of 3mm round beads
    • Swarovski Fancy square stones 8mm
    • Findings for earrings (sterling or gold-filled)
    • Beading needles
    • 1 bobbin of One-G thread
    • 1 reusable carrying case
    • Full color instructions with illustrations and a picture of the completed beadwork
