Our Life Stream fossilized walrus ivory earrings take their winding waterway motifs from the natural spiral patterns found in nature and set them against a richly hued background.
"When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion. It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water. Its color is silver." - Anne Spollen, The Shape of Water
These carved ivory earrings are influenced by the natural eddies and patterns found in running water. They speak of movement with their sterling silver streams set in an eternal spiral design that is echoed through the overall circular shape. This pairs' uncomplicated details and rounded silhouette contribute to a unified design that is wonderfully wearable in soft, organic tones.
The fossilized walrus ivory in this pair is between 500 and 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus tusk spends most of its long life buried underground where minerals color it the range of gorgeous tawny hues that make this material so desirable in fine jewelry and hand crafted art works. It is an important cultural and indigenous economic resource to the Native peoples who gather it for carving, sale, and trade.
