Our Goal is to Bring You the Most Exciting Contemporary Interpretations of Ancient, Spiritually Significant Images.
Each of our handcrafted items is unique and very personal. As it continues to be worn, each piece of Fossilized Ivory will take on individual hues as a result of its interaction with your own body.
In a most personal way then, each is a very special piece that
- connects the individual wearing it to the spirituality felt by ancient man and woman,
- is a part of an ancient living ecosystem, and
- is a reminder of our contemporary responsibilities to our present environment.
