Encased pendant with etched and oxidised brass over handpainting on 10,000 year old mammoth ivory, with inset deco metal textile over handpainting to the reverse.
In the centrepiece, each bead is hand-wired onto the filigree setting to create a sparkling three dimensional frame for the beautiful hand-painting.
The recent warming in places like Siberia results in melting ice and tundra, and soil erosion which exposes buried mammoth skeletons. By using ivory from this source we highlight both global warming and the extinction threatening many of the world's species.
Loose yourself in this intoxicating mix of Swarovski beads, Japanese satin seed beads, fire polished beads from Czechoslovakia, fine European filigree findings.
