The bodies of the bees are hand carved from fossilized walrus ivory, which is 500-3,000 years old. It comes from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, where the native Yupik have exclusive rights to gather and sell this ancient material. Fossilized walrus ivory takes on a range of tones from cream to deep cocoa, depending on the minerals surrounding it in the soil.

A matching pendant is also available. 

Please allow 10 days to 2 weeks for delivery.
