"Taking Flight" Ancient Fossilized Mammoth Tusk Ivory Hummingbird Silver Pendant


This flying hummingbird necklace in silver and creamy ancient ivory highlights the movement that makes these miniature birds so irresistible with articulating sterling silver design details.

A beloved sight in the garden and in the wild, hummingbirds inspire us with their love of life, agility, and with their seemingly endless energy. They are mesmerizing in the air and their flights speeds can reach upward of 50 miles per hour. In fact, they have evolved specifically for flying. Their feet are only functional as perching tools—the hummingbird cannot walk or hop and is truly a creature of the air.

This pendant incorporates three sterling silver dangles at the base of the pendant that are moveable - the articulating joints suggest the speed of this remarkable creature. Sterling silver wings, tail, and beak create a pleasing cool effect against the ancient ivory's warm creaminess. This is the kind of hummingbird pendant necklace you'll get compliments on every time you wear it!

The hummingbird's carved lithe body from fossilized mammoth ivory, an ancient 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. Mammoth ivory is prized as a luminous accent to fine crafts and jewelry such as this carved ivory pendant. 

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

    Width 2 1/4" x Height 4 3/4" (approx)
