"Nature's music is never over; Her silences are pauses, not conclusions." Mary Webb

Our Smoking Coast Amulet III is a more petite incarnation of our Smoking Coast Amulet. The "Smoking Coast" is what native peoples call the Kamchatka Peninsula. Part of the Pacific 'Ring of Fire,' this land is replete with 160 volcanoes (30 of them active), muddy cauldrons and fumeroles, hot springs and geysers. Crystal clear rivers run through it. Between the west coast of the Bering Sea and the east coast of the Sea of Okhosk, the Kamchatka Peninsula is breathtakingly beautiful in summer and almost unbearably rugged in winter. The world's largest population of grizzly bears walk its fields, and half the world's population of Stellar Eagles fly over the two mountain ranges that split it down the middle. It is wild, and it is rugged. Truly a land that encourages belief in the power of the spirits of earth, sky and waters. Their spirits lived in the rocks, waterfalls and ancient dwellings.

It is amidst this spiritual setting, in an excavation of the 3000-year old dwelling of a "Nunalik" ["Keeper of the Place" {Yupik language}], were found a number of Amulets and Talismans of Fossil Ivory and base metal. Our Smoking Coast Amulet III has been designed after one of the smaller excavated prizes that reflected both the ruggedness and the beauty of the land. Only our process of reticulation (producing a rugged surface on sterling silver by melting the middle of a flat sheet, but not the surfaces) could reflect this rugged land. The Amulet rests on your choice of gemstone: Garnet, Amethyst, Citrine or Opal. A mocha colored hemispheric cross-section of Fossil Walrus Ivory with a startling ray pattern completes the scene. A unique and powerful amulet. 1 1/8 inches long, 3/4 inch wide. Shown in Sterling Silver.

Like this rugged land, the process of reticulation cannot be precisely controlled - Each piece will have a slightly different pattern of reticulation. Only 12 pieces available.
