"Bees" Ancient Fossilized Walrus Tusk Ivory and Blue Topaz Silver Earrings


$ 175.00

Our blue topaz and silver bee earrings are carved from fossilized ivory and set with a mixed metal treatment that encapsulates the intrepid bee's beauty.

The bees' bodies are handcrafted from fossilized walrus ivory, which has lain in the earth for some 500 to 3,000 years. This ivory is a prized cultural and economic resource for the Native Alaskan people who gather it for carving, sale, and trade. It makes a particularly earthy addition to our jeweled pendants, adding a touch of antiquity to your favorite piece of Zealandia jewelry.
