I hand etched this scrimshaw design on pre-ban elephant ivory with a pair of colorful bluebirds on flowering spring branches. The outline is inked with black india ink and the color detail is created by many fine etching lines and then it is carefully painted with permanent, pigmented ink using a fine brush. This ensures lasting color which will not wipe off. It is finished with 2 coats of archival wax to protect the scrimshaw and enhance the beauty of the ivory.

The ivory measures 1 1/2" high by 1 1/16" wide and is cut in a teardrop shape. It is drilled front to back and comes with a silver pinch bail, ready to hang on your favorite chain. The pendant hangs over 1 3/4" with the bail included. The back is polished which allows for an inscription if you would like. Contact me with your requirements.
