This delightful sterling silver frog pin from our unique silver jewelry collection snapshots the tree frog clinging to a branch in one of the many seemingly impossible poses he assumes. Tree frogs are uniquely suited for living their lives above the ground. Their toe pads and claw-like digits help them clamber with ease, and most species are wonderfully light, their weight hardly registering as they scurry from branch to branch.
Frogs themselves have enjoyed a rich and storied mythology. They are seen to represent water energy, regeneration, and healing. One particular tree frog living in the Amazon rainforest secretes a powerful cocktail of potentially medicinal bio-active peptides. Traditionally, tribes have used this secretion for everything from reversing bad luck to snake bites and malaria.
Our tree frog's body is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, a prized material some 500 to 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus ivory lies buried for centuries where it accretes its range of earthen hues. After the tides and erosion uncover it, Native peoples gather the fossilized ivory for carving, sale, and trade. It is an important part of their indigenous economy, prized worldwide for its relative scarcity and quality.
The sterling silver details in this fossilized ivory frog pin beautifully complement the ivory's earth tones. You'll treasure this winsome piece for a lifetime!
