This whale tail pendant was made from Fossilized Walrus Ivory and Sterling Silver by Edward Lawrence.
Colors will vary as each beautiful piece of ancient ivory is uniquely tinted by earthen minerals.
About the Artist:
Edward Lawrence has been a craftsman all his life. He started out as a moccasin maker in 1971, working with all types of leather accessories. Next, he explored Native American beadwork. It was through creative experiences like these that he was eventually introduced to fossil artifacts.
The bulk of the collection is made out of fossil artifacts from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. Amongst harpoon tips, sewing needles, and ice testers, you will also find ancient game pieces and ornate buttons. Edward also incorporates amber from Mexico, Anasazi pottery shards from private lands in the Southwest, turquoise, old coins, skeletons keys, and…who knows. Inspiration knows no bounds.
His wife, Diana, designs and strings together stunning one-of-a-kind beaded necklaces and bracelets. Together they’re excited to share their collection.
