Fossil Walrus Ivory, Dyed Red Coral & Sterling Silver Necklace
This necklace has been strung on 49 Strand wire, which combines the flexibility and softness of thread with the strength and durability of stainless steel wire. Specially designed for stringing ceramic, crystal, metal, and stone beads - as well as seed beads and freshwater pearls - Beadalon 49 Strand is the softest and most flexible of all Beadalon varieties. Designs fashioned from Beadalon 49 Strand drape very naturally without kinking. Beadalon 49 Strand is the finest choice wire for creating jewelry designs that look professional and remain secure. The smooth nylon coating provides good abrasion resistance, prevents kinking, and prolongs strand life.
Silver beads, Spacers, Toggles & Clasps
We utilize a wide variety of silver bead accents, spacers, toggles and clasps, most of which are handmade in Bali, Indonesia. All toggles and clasps are 925 Sterling Silver, as are the majority of beads and spacers. If you are highly sensative to silver less than 925/1000 please email me to ensure each and every bead is Sterling.
Fossil Ivory: Mammoth & Walrus
Fossilized Walrus Ivory is a rare and unique material collected on St. Lawrence Island, Alaska by the native Inuit. The material ranges in age from 500 to 50,000 years old, and exhibits a range of natural colors resulting from the absorption of minerals. No animals are harmed to collect the ivory.
Dyed Red Coral
This piece has red coral beads that have been dyed to make them a brighter color red. I have done multiple tests on these beads and have found that for a small number of people the dye fades from regular wear - I am not sure why, but believe it has to do with individual chemistry. What this means is, unfortunately, the dye will sometimes fade, or in rare instances, the dye will rub off on the skin or clothing of the wearer.
