Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. - Langston Hughes

This dreamy river necklace from our paua jewelry collection is alive with symbolism and nature's majesty. This is the kind of piece that people respond to like myth, immediately inviting story and personal experience into the conversation. 'That pendant reminds me of a day I still remember years later,' or, 'I've been to that very place—I'm sure of it!'

The river, which can be seem to symbolize eternity and transience, captures the eye in brilliantly colored New Zealand paua shell. This type of abalone lives only in New Zealand waters, and its shell is celebrated for its vibrant cobalt, green, and sunset coral shades. 

The soaring bird is crafted from hand carved and inked fossilized mammoth ivory, which is over 15,000 years old. Mammoth ivory's prized opaque luminosity lends jewelry a touch of antiquity and quality that is impossible to fake. It has lain in permafrost or the earth for millennia, gradually accreting a range of cream to caramel hues.

The moon in this carved ivory pendant is set in mother of pearl, a wonderful material to represent this celestial body. The moon shines above distant mountains and clouds forged in patterned sterling silver, creating a serene backdrop for this inspiring scene.

This pin/pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
