Product Description

"The wind is like a great bird tumbling over the sea with bright flashing wings."
Sailors have always believed in myths. They wore many Talismans to ensure that their voyages were safe and successful. Two of the oldest beliefs of seamen are that wild winds can be pacified by a witch, and the sight of dolphins brings fresh breezes and good luck.

Our Wind Witch and Dolphin Talisman has both a mother and a baby dolphin leaping over the sea. They are in high relief against a rectangular Sterling Silver background. A piece of 2500 year old Fossil Walrus Ivory, worn down only by nature into the unmistakable shape of an old witch in a hood and long skirt carrying a bag of wind on her back, is set on an axis. The witch is free for you to rotate while you wear this Talisman. 1 1/2 inch high, 1 1/4 inch wide. Complete with Sterling Silver chain.

A really unique gift for the nautically inclined.

Fossil Ivory Color Charts

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized 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.
