The task - Carve a birds feather realistically.
The Medium: Siberian Mammoth Ivory, 15,000 - 25,000 years old
The Result - Feathers so beautifully carved that it's hard to believe they are done by hand. Yet, a lifetime of carving shows in each piece, as does the human need to communicate through art of all forms. Neanderthals did so and included mammoth ivory for many uses including jewellery, tools and shelter. We carry on this tradition and have used wing and feather designs for our Summer "15 range
We select high quality mannoth ivory fragments for this work, and then set them in silver.
NOTE: This stunning wing can be with matched with EXQUISITE earrings. These are sold and listed separately on our website.
Fossil: Mammoth Ivory Mammuthus primagenius
Age: Pleistocene approximately 15,000 - 25,000 years
Size: The feather measures approximately 40mm (they are hand made so there may be slight variance)
Metal: Solid 925 Silver
