The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. - Helen Keller
Since time immemorial, artists have yearned to capture what is felt in the heart through visual art, movement, and music. The indescribable power of the heart has inspired our fossilized ivory and garnet pin, which is adorned in a rich mixed metal sterling silver and 14k gold fill treatment. Texture, pattern, color, and form all combine beautifully in this ivory pin that can also be worn as a necklace pendant.
Fossilized walrus tusk ivory is used at this garnet pin's heart center. This ancient ivory is ideal for fossilized ivory jewelry as it takes its unique color from the centuries it spends buried in the earth. Eventually, the walrus tusk ivory is unearthed through erosion and the tides. Indigenous people gather it for use in fossilized ivory jewelry such as this walrus ivory pin or other artisanal crafts and art pieces.
This pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver 1.1mm box with with a secure sterling silver lobster clasp.
This pin/pendant is approximately 1 1/8" wide x 1 1/4" tall
