This delightful cat with string carved ivory pendant highlights our signature artisan craftsmanship in its fine details and iridescent labradorite accent—the perfect treasure for cat lovers!
The cat's playful and curious personality is a big part of what makes these animals so loveable. They are the hunter domesticated, retaining much of the species' intense desire to interact with the world at large. Cats remind us of the role of play in our own lives and the importance of remaining open to the moment's delight and opportunities.
Our designers sought to capture the cat in a classic moment as he bats at a ball of string, represented by a glowing labradorite stone. Labradorite is considered a magical stone that helps attune you to your inner intuition and mystical self. Here, the labradorite's blue and green tones offer a gorgeous counterpoint to the fossilized ivory cat's earthy hue.
The playful cat is hand carved from fossilized walrus ivory, a prized material that is between 500 and 3,000 years old. It lies underground for centuries, accreting its earthen tones. Erosion and the tides eventually unearth our fossilized walrus ivory, and Native Alaskan people gather it for sale, trade, and carving, as they have done for centuries. It is an important cultural and economic resource for the Native Alaskans, and it makes a fine addition to jewelry and artisan crafts.
Our cat pendant in silver and fossilized ivory is finished with a sterling silver border imprinted with paw prints. This piece is sure to delight cat lovers everywhere with its whimsy and charm.
