Our String Theory II carved ivory earrings combine Zealandia's signature swirling surf accents with earthy fossilized ivory beads in a variety of shapes, creating a favorite pair that you'll want to wear with every look!
The upper and lower sterling silver surf details are hand worked with spirals that evoke an ocean spray and the currents. Jenny Byrne, Zealandia's lead designer, counts the ocean as one of her greatest artistic influences growing up in New Zealand. Its magic has continued to inspire during her worldwide travels, and these surf details show up in many of her designs.
The fossilized walrus ivory beads that join the silver surf details are made from walrus tusk that is 500-3,000 years old. The walrus tusk has lain in the earth for centuries, accreting a variegated rich caramel to cocoa hue. Its range of natural tones and rare quality make it a prized material in fine jewelry and artisan crafts. Fossilized walrus ivory is an important cultural and economic resource for the Native peoples who gather it for use in carving, sale, and trade.
These earrings measure 1" wide x 2 1/8" long (approx).
