Classic Desert Primitive Style…power combined with a refined feral style. This pendant was made from a raw shard of broken mastodon ivory, which I hand-shaped and polished to a soft glow to bring out the grain and coloration of the material. It feels phenomenal in the hand. The tea-stained color with deep teal blue markings comes from thousands of years of burial in permafrost. The fine grain can be seen in the closeups, including the crosshatched Schreger lines (visible in the 7th photo). The powerfully built mastodons roamed across many landscapes before they went extinct, well before their cousins the mammoths.

The bold, primitive shape of the pendant is offset by the fineness of the beaded strand. The main body of the strand consists of seed pearls alternating with two tiny antique French steel cut beads, but I have also included many other types as accents. These include vintage brass from Orissa, India; Keshi pearls, antique Burmese silver, Thai Hill Tribe silver, and some tiny bronze clay beads and discs bearing desert impressions. At the juncture of the strand rests a large faceted ancient quartz bead from Central Asia. I used professional grade beading wire to string the beads.

This necklace is perfect on its own, but you can also layer it successfully with other pieces if you like. The ivory is extremely durable.

SIZE: The necklace measures 22" from the back of your neck to the end of the pendant when worn.  The pendant measures 4 3/8” x 5/8” x 1/4”.

CARE:  Wipe with a damp cloth to clean. The bead strand may be rinsed, and polished with a jeweler’s polishing cloth.

PRESENTATION: This necklace will come to you beautifully giftwrapped in an earth-friendly and recycled gift box.  Please see the Shop Policies below for details.
