The Bee Habitat necklace finds our honeybee in his natural environment, represented here in gleaming sterling silver and honey colored 14k gold fill accents. The bee is placed at the heart of this pendant and a sparkling garnet—known as the heart stone—is set above him in a rich mixed metal treatment.
The honeybee himself is carved from fossilized walrus tusk, a prized natural material that is between 500 and 3,000 years old. The walrus tusk ivory has spent centuries buried in the earth where minerals stain it the warm caramels to soft browns that signify this ancient material. Native peoples gather this fossilized walrus ivory for use in their carvings and for sale or trade. It is a vital part of their cultural traditions as well as their indigenous economy. Fossilized walrus ivory is prized the world over for the touch of history and earthy color it brings to a carved ivory pendant such as this one.
