I created this beautiful, long spike of ivory from a raw piece that was found in Alaska. It’s from a lengthwise slice of tusk that had been buried in permafrost for thousands of years. The long ages darkened and weathered the outer surface of the tusk, while the interior remained light with subtle striations along its creamy interior. I gave this piece a very high polish on all sides to bring out those gorgeous colors, using all hand-held abrasives including sandpaper, sanding sponges, and extremely fine polishing papers. It was a labor of love, but the resulting surface was well worth the effort.

Because of the minimalist style of the pendant, only a simple silver chain was needed. I oxidized and refinished the sterling cable chain to harmonize perfectly with the ivory; a bail and ring clasp of heavier sterling, hammered on desert rock and also hand finished, were added to complete the piece.

Mammoths once walked our desert, along with mastodons, camels, giant sloths, lions, saber tooth cats, and cheetahs. As the Ice Age ended and the climate warmed and dried, these animals either disappeared or retreated to cooler climes, finally to the Arctic Circle. The last relict population of these magnificent beings finally went extinct only a few thousand years ago in northern Siberia. This pendant is a talisman of a vanished age, potent with ancient energy and the spirit of the mammoths.

SIZE: The ivory pendant is 6“ x 1/2”. The necklace measures 20 1/4” from the back of your neck to the end of the pendant when worn.

.CARE:  Wipe the ivory with a soft, damp cloth to clean it. Do not immerse it in water or it may split. The silver can be polished with a silver polishing cloth.
