This completely 3 dimensional turtle shell bolo is handcrafted of solid white bronze with a an oxidized sterling silver overlay. No turtles were harmed in the creation of this piece, it was completely hand carved, inside and out and is so well detailed that it looks like it was cast from a real shell. It is 1-1/4" long by 1-1/8" wide with the braided bolo passing right through the natural openings of the shell and hangs perfectly with just the right amount of tension to keep it in position. The bottom of the shell is as beautifully detailed as the top. The black faux leather cord is evenly braided along it's entire 42" length and tastefully finished with 1-1/4" silver toned bolo tips at each end.
