I was sorting through some jewelry I set aside from the pillowcase full I found in early April. I’m going to put some on Etsy and others I’ll throw in the yard-sale bin.
Three specific pieces stuck out because of their material. They all look to be made of bone or ivory, which comes predominantly from elephant tusks but also other animals. This necklace looks fairly old and appeared to be composed of different segments glued together.
This pendant (about 2″ high) looks to be two separate, solid pieces.
This small pendant (close to 2″ tall) definitely looks like a tusk, from what I don’t know.
Finding all this trash gives me a great opportunity to learn about things I may not have learned about otherwise. If anyone knows anything about these pieces – what material they’re made of; what animal they came from; their value and anything else – let me know as I’m definitely curious!
My trip to Rosemont in the morning didn’t bring home much. Hopefully my trip to the Mile-End proves more fruitful.
