Product Description

Sterling Silver - $89.50



"Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that's where you renew your springs that never dry up."
Pearl S. Buck


Archeologists have recently found that the Celts left us a rich and exciting store of delicate jewelry designs. These are an amazing amalgam of the delicate designs of those Northern European cultures visited by the Celts, and the strengths of the Celts.

Our Celtic Scrimshaw Pendant is modeled after a pin found in a dig at Roskilde, Denmark. It dates from about 1000 years ago. A perfectly proportioned square of Fossil Ivory with full bezel and back is held below a long and graceful bail embossed with Celtic crossed lines. The Ivory sits above a gemstone of your choice. Choose either Citrine, Garnet, Amethyst, Lapis, or Opal. Personalize with up to three initials on back for a small additional charge.

A perfect Pendant for when you need to feel "strong, yet delicate." Just 1 1/4 inch long, including bail. Choose your design from either a nautical theme or flowers.

Shown with Medium Light Fossil Walrus Ivory, Opal, and scrimshaw thistle.


Complete with Sterling Silver chain.

None of our Ivory is contemporary, and not a single animal has been killed, culled, or otherwise harmed to produce our Fossil Ivories. It is the only perfect, ecologically sound, humane way to own and wear warm, wonderful and enduring ivory.

Each piece is handmade in our studio and signed. Marvin Cohen is widely recognized as one of America's leading scrimshanders, as well as a creative designer specializing in custom and semi-custom knifemaking, jewelry wearables and objects that

  • illustrate traditional Arctic region Native American tales and myths,
  • reinterpret ancient shamanistic images, and
  • translate the spiritual aspects of earth, water and sky into meaningful and personal contemporary wearables.

The available colors of our high quality Fossilized Ivories are shown below. (Please allow for some color variation in these natural materials.) Our Rare Blue Fossil Walrus Ivory may have streaks of white, pink, brown or gray. Our natural wonderful Ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes. In time, the Fossil Ivories you wear or use will take on very personal hues from your contact. They will become a part of you.
