The Lore of the Turtle

Katherine Jetter's signature turtle represents nature and specifically her love of the Great Barrier Reef. She adorns the symbol as a tribute to her home country’s tremendous natural landscapes, and draws strength from a creature long considered a bearer of luck and longevity. The designer maintains a belief in the preservation of earth and the importance of global participation in protecting wildlife. Her turtle reflects these values.

The zen of the Turtle
In Asia, the turtle's shell was a symbol of heaven, and the square underside was a symbol of earth. The turtle's magic unites the two. This magic stays with each tiny turtle in the Katherine Jetter collection. The designer's wish is that by wearing the turtle it will help its owner unite heaven and earth within their own life.
