Fossilized Walrus Ivory Handmade Silver Dangling Earrings with Peridot - Ripples
Every detail of this walrus ivory tree frog has been carefully considered right down to his distinctive toe pads. Here he is caught in mid-climb as he makes his way past faceted green peridot accents to a high place of rest.
The animal symbolism of the frog takes the many different forms this creature experiences as he grows (symbolizing transformation) and also its prolific procreative abilities (symbolizing fertility, as with the ancient Egyptians). The tree frog is an especially beloved member of the amphibious family, which is why he was selected to star in this silver frog necklace.
The frog's body is carved from ancient fossilized walrus ivory, which is buried in the earth for centuries before being exposed through natural erosion and the tides. Native peoples gather this precious material, and it is carved into jewelry, fine art pieces, and more. Each piece of natural walrus ivory is uniquely colored due to the earth's mineral composition, creating a truly unique piece of jewelry.
