My recent obsession with folk art lead me to the wonderful world of Scrimshaw. Each one of these pendants is hand inscribed with an image, blackened with ink and sealed with wax on a piece of Tagua nut (otherwise known as palm or vegetable ivory). I poured through many books and resources ranging from heraldry, to the mystical and occult to come up with designs of new symbols that implied some secret history.

This moth to flame makes one think of being inexorably drawn to something both dangerous and beautiful. The piece sits in a hand fabricated sterling silver bezel setting and hangs on an 18" sterling rope patterned cable chain with lobster clasp. Pendant measures approx 3/4" diameter (not including top loop).

Thanks for looking, Cheers!
