The body of the hummingbird is carved by hand from fossilized walrus ivory, which is some 500-3,000 years old. The native Yupik of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska have the exclusive right to gather the fossilized walrus ivory we use in our designs. This precious ancient material is an important part of the Yupik's economy and heritage, and it is the inspiration behind many of our most beloved jewelry pieces. Fossilized walrus ivory takes on a range of tones from cream to deep cocoa, depending on the minerals surrounding it in the soil.
