Enjoy these beautiful whale tail earrings with sterling silver detail, made of fossilized woolly mammoth ivory.
Designed by Ed Lawrence Dunk of Fosilart.
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 fossilized walrus and mammoth ivory.
The bulk of the collection is made out of fossil walrus artifacts from St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. Amongst harpoon tips, sewing needles, and ice testers, you will also find ancient game pieces and ornate buttons.
As mammoth ivory is a natural material, rare and one-of-a-kind, you will receive a very similar piece with possible small variation in color or texture.
