These lovely hand-carved stone turtles make fantastic little nick-nack holders, jewellery dishes or whatever else of a small nature you fancy temporarily storing in them.
There are handy little notches in either side to rest a make-up brush, spoon, or art paint brush on, so they will not roll away. If you are anything like me and get your necklace chains tangled up this is the answer for you, just lay the end of your chain in the notch to keep it separate.
They come in a variety of colours and being a completely natural material every one is unique.

Made in Indonesia
The fair trade jewellery and handicrafts bought from Indonesia are all village produced. One village will tend to specialize in a certain craft e.g. some concentrate on silver, others bead work, others wood carving or bamboo work. The communities are continually producing new designs to add to their collections.
Our supplier supports the development of their craft by paying a fair price to enable the artisans to source new materials and tools. He personally visits these small family businesses and maintains regular contact.
