“A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life, to be thankful for a good one.”
As far as we know, Paleo Native Americans have always believed that everything in nature is not only physical, but also has a powerful spirit. Many archeological sites show that, as early as 10,000 years ago, Paleo Native Americans were wearing earrings made from natural materials such as walrus and mammoth ivory, found pebbles, shells, etc. These earrings were probably thought to possess special powers of protection associated with the spirit of the piece. Sometimes the materials had been worked into a different shape, but in most instances, such as in our Paleo Indian earrings, the naturally-occurring shape was not modified, except in rare instances for a contrasting inlay.. The elongated, irregular-curved shape of these dark fossil walrus ivory earrings occurred by being tide washed on a rocky beach for much of its 7000 years. We have inlaid a lovely small opal in each earring. With Amethyst bead on the Sterling Silver French earwires 1 ½ inch high, 1/2 inch wide.
