Silver Mermaid Jewelry - Dancing Silver Mermaid Pendant
Perhaps the mermaid's most attractive quality is her ability to play. She is grace and movement personified with her glittering fishtail and lithe form, but above all, she is connected to a youthful sense of play like few other mythical creatures. Our dancing silver mermaid pendant celebrates the mermaid at her most joyful as she dives through the surf.
This mermaid's upper body and face are hand carved from fossilized mammoth tusk ivory, an ancient material that sings a song older than mermaid lore itself. Ancient mammoth ivory has lain in the earth for many thousands of years. There it gathered its soft cream hue. Today this fossilized ivory is used in fine carved ivory pendants such as this one and in other artisanal crafts.
The play of luminous ancient ivory against bright sterling silver lends this mammoth ivory necklace an added touch of sea-inspired beauty. This piece from our beloved silver mermaid jewelry collection is sure to take center stage whenever you wear it.
