    Cat in the Grass Fossilized Walrus Ivory Pin or Pendant

    This sterling silver cat pin and pendant is all graceful lines and enchanting detail. The patterned sterling silver setting's shape mimics the cat's twitching ears and also evokes a grassy spot in the garden—an excellent vantage point for our watchful feline. This cat in the grass pin/pendant is the perfect decorative piece of jewelry for any cat lover.

    The bewitching cat is hand carved from fossilized walrus ivory. This ancient material is between 500 and 3,000 years old, and it has lain buried underground for most of its life. There, minerals color the fossilizing ivory a range of caramel to rich cocoa hues. After erosion and the tides unearth it, Native Alaskans gather it for carving, sale, and trade—it is an important cultural and indigenous economic resource.

    As fossilized walrus ivory is a natural material colored by the earth, the exact color in your carved ivory pendant may vary from the picture shown.

    A faceted peridot accent stone is used to accent this silver cat pin/pendant. Its soft green hue echoes the great outdoors and also a cat's eye. The facets bring out the stone's dimension and lend a touch of sparkle to this lovely piece.
