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.
