"Hummingbird Flight" Ancient Fossilized Mammoth Tusk Ivory and Peridot Silver Pendant


This hummingbird pendant necklace in ancient ivory and fresh green peridot finds our beloved bird in a spiral of flight on a flowing spiral setting inspired by movement and the wind..

The hummingbird is beloved for his delight in life, lightness, energy, and quick, precise action. He is a fascinating creature to watch with his lightning fast wing beats and the sweet way he sips nectar from a flower or feeder. Hummingbirds are masters of agility and can fly in all directions, including backward. They hover by flapping their tiny wings in an infinity-shaped figure eight pattern, and their flight is a visual symphony of agility, speed, and unpredictable pattern.

The hummingbird's dancing flight inspired this design. The sterling silver setting features two counterbalanced green peridot accent stones and a subtle texture that gives the spiral setting depth and added movement. 

Our hummingbird's fossilized mammoth ivory body is carved by hand from a material that is over 15,000 years old. This fossilized ivory has spent much of its long life buried in permafrost or underground where minerals stain it rich cream to honey and deep cocoa hues. It is prized as a luminous addition to fine crafts and jewelry such as this carved ivory pendant. The inclusion of fossilized mammoth ivory in our pieces honors the earth, its precious and now-extinct inhabitants, and nature's voluminous gifts.

matching earrings are available to complete this set.

The pendant measures approximately 1 1/4" wide and 1 3/4" tall. 

This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1 mm box chain with lobster clasp.
