Fossilized Mammoth Bear Pendant
Polar bear mothers are fiercely protective of their cubs. When the babies are born they're only the size of a guinea pig! Over a span of about three months they feed on their mothers rich milk while she stays in the den eating nothing. When they emerge together from the den, the cubs weigh about 20-30 pounds. They live together for 2-3 years, the mothers teaching the cubs everything they need to know to survive. This pendant is a tribute to that fierce devotion.
This bear pendant features hand carved fossilized mammoth ivory, which has lain buried in the permafrost for tens of thousands of years. Fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material and prized for its soft cream color that makes it ideal or fine jewelry.
