Default Helping the Sea Turtles of Cozumel

I hope this is the right place to post this.

We go to Cozumel, MX every year for our diving vacation, and have learned that the Ecological Society down there that helps to preserve the sea turtle numbers is not governmental funded. They rely 100% on donations to run their program.

What they do and mark the nests (there were 7500 nexts last year) and then help protect them from poachers (as well as the turtles when they come to lay their eggs). After the nests have hatched, they did them up, count the egg shells, and also rescue any late hatchers that are too far down in the nest to be able to get out with out help.

Its a very cool program. I will be making some items to donate to them for sales when the tourists come to their little trailer...and it's little...bout 10 x 10.

Anyone willing to accept a challenge to make some items to donate to help them raise some funds?

We will be leaving for Cozumel on 10/26/2013 so there is some time to get things made and sent to me to deliver.

For more information you can see their Facebook page here

https://www.facebook.com/CozumelTurtles

I can be reached at aussieu@comcast.net as well.

How can you resist helping little guys like this one that we rescued in 2012!!

Mary thank you, I was trying to figure out how to make a few, this will help if it's anything like the excellent tutorials I've bought from you in the past!
(Not that I've actually made a dragon or jellyfish bead for example, but I've read them while I get up my nerve, and actually made components of the jellyfish bead)

That is one beautiful turtle.

Here are a few that I'm sending. Thank you Mary for the tut.





Sadly one of the others that I was going to send broke a flipper.

Thank you for the tut, Mary! I'm in! I love Cozumel and diving there. I was in on the Juan Leca push to save Paradise reef. I'm all for saving any part of our marine environment!

you all are fabulous!! This is going to be so fun to give them all to the eco society there. BTW ..it was brought to my attention (my words not theirs) that i'm an idiot..duh..posting my address and when i will be gone was not so smart

That being said...send me a private message and i'll give you my address where to send these amazing donations!!

I have a huge dog show this weekend so won't be able to try my hand at Mary's tut till next weekend.

Hey Dawn..no worries on the broken flipper...there are those babies born that have broken or missing flippers as well. We all are not perfect..that would make us all ordinary right!!

Is it salvageable enough that he can maybe still go?

Thanks Becky!
They are like little pets almost, so much personality (to me anyway).
I rarely list them for sale...they just sit around and watch me work. But they wouldn't mind a trip to Mexico to help their kin. (except the baby one, he's too skeeert)

Do you want to pm me that address that you had hanging out for the world to see!

Just the push that I needed to buy the jellyfish and dragon tutorials while I was there, thanks Mary!

This is going to have to wait until the three feet of snow here melts so I can put together my studio, but that is okay 'cause you aren't leaving 'til October, right? ;p

ooooo so excited. I just received the first turtles to take to Cozumel and give to the Ecological Society as donations from Steve and beautiful is not a good enough word to use to describe them!

I bought some of his sea murinni to try my hand at a turtle or two and now have some seaweed twisties to use and not give my self a headache trying to figure out how to make them! Thank you Steve..that was very nice of you.

Newbie headaches are NOT fun

so does anyone have any photos of the turtles they have been making with Mary's tut? I'd love to see them. I will be attempting my first one this weekend, since it will be snowing this weekend. I've received Steve's and they are more fabulous in person then they were in the photos!!

Anyone? Anyone??

Default My First Attempt At Mary's Turtle

Today was my first attempt at Mary Lockwood's Turtle. I bought her tutorial when i thought of this project and don't regret it one bit. Super simple to follow, and so detailed..it's fabulous!!

Too bad the unlabeled rod that looked like amber was actually transparent red or pink of some type.

My fins and head are too big, but I'm happy with this monster of a bead. It didn't crack when i was making it which is good cause I have never had that much glass at the end of my stick before...now it's in the kiln hopefully cooking nicely and not cracking.

I don't have a big kiln yet, so the mini devarti annealer will have to do. Just hope i can figure out timing for cooking it.

Can't wait to do another..but only one at a time will fit in the kiln till my Glass-hive gets here.

Becky

I love to make turtles. It's as though you are making these critters come to life and each one has it's own personality.

I just found this thread. We went to Cozumel as one of the stops on our cruise last month. I have several implosion turtles made, already in my stash.
