Lilac Turtles at Little Luxuries
For the 2011 season, Just So! designed an exclusive jewelry collection for Little Luxuries on Mackinac Island. Little Luxuries is a wonderful boutique focusing on charming handmade and specialty items. Our line for Little Luxuries is called "The Lilac Turtle" and is named both for Mackinac Island's annual Lilac Festival as well as the Native American name for the island (which means "Great Turtle," a reference to the Island's shape). Shown here are sterling silver charm necklaces created from impressions of a rustic Latin American wax seal featuring a sea turtle. These large charms are accented with oval freshwater pearls and hung on Italian-made black leather cords. Handmade in Michigan with elements from around the world, these wear-with-anything necklaces are a mix of old and new with special Island meaning!
