(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) - A baby sea turtle emerges from her shell in this latest addition to Bernard Reller’s Nautical Charm Bead Collection.
Inscribed with the letters STC, this new bead marks Reller’s alliance with the Sea Turtle Conservancy, an international, non-profit organization established in 1959 by famed conservationist and University of Florida Zoology Researcher, Dr. Archie Carr.Reller donates STC branded jewelry for sale on the Conservancy’s website (www.conserveturtles.org) and at their educational center in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, a twenty mile stretch of protected sea turtle nesting habitat along Florida’s Treasure Coast south of Melbourne Beach.
An avid SCUBA diver and treasure hunter, Reller’s designs have long reflected his love of the sea. His Turtle Collection alone depicts half a dozen anatomically correct species in exquisite detail in the form of pendants, earrings, bracelets and now, beads.
