    New Mermaid Jewelry from Jenny Byrne

    New Mermaid Jewelry from Jenny Byrne

    Mermaid Jewelry

    Jenny Byrne designs a new mermaid each year as an expression of the freedom and joy of time spent in or by the ocean. Her mystical mermaids are carved from ancient mammoth ivory and set in sterling silver enhanced with gemstones and pearls. The mermaid above features a facet cut rainbow moonstone and is available online.

    Her intricate designs incorporates prehistoric fossilized wooly mammoth ivory. Now extinct, the mammoth roamed the earth until about 10,000 years ago. Mammoth ivory is found as a consequence of gold mining in Canada, Alaska and Siberia and is found in the layer just above the gold. It can also be found in deposits after a violent winter storm have revealed a portion of the material sticking up out of the permafrost near ancient lake beds. The grain pattern of spirals running clockwise and counter clockwise over one another proves it is pre-Ice Age mammoth ivory.

    More of this collection is available in our collection of Fossilized Ivory Jewelry.

    Created Opal Jewelry with Sterling Silver

    Created Opal Jewelry with Sterling Silver

    We love this created opal jewelry. It is more resilient and stronger than natural opal. It’s fire is more consistent. It allows artists to inlay the stones in beautiful ways like these sea turtle earrings with sterling silver. We find it to be a great addition to our collection of natural opals because it can be worn everyday with out the fear and worry that it may crack. Though it is made in a lab, the elements they use to make the opal are the same elements that are found in natural opal, silica mixed with a small amount of resin. We also have starfish, crabs, jellyfish, flip flops and more.
