The Life Stream ancient mammoth tusk pendant takes its winding waterway motif from the natural spiral patterns found in nature and sets it against a richly hued background.
"When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion. It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water. Its color is silver."- Anne Spollen, The Shape of Water
This carved ivory pendant is influenced by the natural eddies and patterns found in running water. The entire piece speaks of movement from the sterling silver stream set with an eternal spiral design to the pendant's overall paddle shape carved from fossilized ivory. Its uncomplicated details contribute to a unified design that is wonderfully wearable in soft, organic tones.
The ancient mammoth tusk featured in this carved ivory pendant is over 15,000 years old, dating back to before the extinction of these wondrous creatures. Mammoth tusk lies in permafrost or underground for centuries where its cream color is either preserved or colored a gorgeous range of tawny hues. The variegated coloring in fossilized mammoth tusk is part of what makes this natural material such a desirable accent in fine jewelry pieces and artisan crafts. Mammoth ivory takes us back in time to a bygone era, reminding us just how irrevocably life can change.
