Our fossilized ivory fish pin makes a statement when pinned to a lapel, hat, or scarf, or when worn on a chain as a pendant. Its graceful lines and hand-worked detail give it that earthen appeal that is the hallmark of Zealandia jewelry.
This piece of fishing jewelry is ideal for anyone passionate about the sport, the outdoors, or for those who connect to its water themed symbolism. Water has long been held as the realm of the unconscious, a dream world of great psychic depth. Water in all its manifestations can have different meanings. Running water can signal the currents of change, and stagnant water stuck or pooling emotion. Deep water can symbolize unknown aspects of ourselves—there are limitless interpretations and personal meanings for this life-giving element.
Our fossilized ivory fish wears a body of fossilized walrus tusk, which is some 500 to 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus tusk ivory has lain in the earth for centuries where it accretes a variegated cream to deep cocoa hue. The Native peoples who gather it for carving, sale, and trade consider it a vital economic and cultural resource. It is valued the world over for its singular quality and the unique contribution it makes to fine jewelry or artisan crafts.
This fossilized walrus ivory fish pin can also be worn as a pendant, taking its design details from Native fish imagery and the play of gleaming sterling silver against the earthy ancient ivory.
This pendant comes on 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
