Itโ€™s that time of year! Elk season means Ivory season!! These ivories are from a customer who got her elk this year during the archery hunt-super awesome! The other pair is from her hunt last year. She wanted her ivories to be used in a custom piece. Ivories are the perfect way to enjoy the memories of the hunt long after itโ€™s over and after the freezer is empty ๐Ÿ˜„. Some say the ivories are the real trophy because they are often left behind by many people, either for lack of knowledge that they exist or lack of desire to keep them. But, for those who take the time to harvest these beautiful treasures, they are getting a unique keepsake. No two ivories will ever be exactly like another. You can mount the antlers, but you canโ€™t wear them around your neck๐Ÿ˜‚. So using the Elk Ivory in a jewelry piece is the perfect way to wear your memories! #elkivory #elkhunting #elkivoryjewelry

I wanted to share this bad ass power-piece recently finished. This was a custom order and my customer provided two bear teeth and an elk Ivory. I sketched a few designs and this was the winner. I call this the Double Warrior. Each tooth is about 3โ€ long, and you definitely feel like a warrior wearing it. Such a fun project and an honor to make.

There is more than one way to honor and remember a great harvest in the field. Custom ivory rings by local artist Fred Peralta. I sent him a picture of what I wanted and he nailed it! Wife is happy too! Message me if you would like something like this done I can put you in touch! #jewerly #ivoryjewelry #elkivory #elk #euronount.

Continuing with the body ornamentation theme, I'd also like to give a public gesture of gratitude to mahรกsani, my other skin, for gifting me most of all the Elk ivory I am honored to wear around my neck, on my wedding ring, and on my ears โ‡๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿ’• Elk only have 2 ivory teeth each. Gifting me these signifies the promise he made me when we married: a life of protection, providing, and eternal love. As we know, ivory, unlike teeth, last even after the bones have dacayed โ‡ Much like our coyote and wolf relatives--and true to our people's belief of gratefulness for the life of the elk whose teeth I wear-- Ernest has been able to scavenge most of these from carcasses that hunters leave behind. Urpillay sunqullay mahรกsani ki, techhihila mihinkna @quillandstone โค . I'm not one to share much by way of personal stories, and I hope I'm not making a mistake by sharing this on this platform, but I've found that there are many images with fake or real elk teeth on IG, but not much information about them. And so I wanted to share my own piece to a bigger story ๐Ÿ’™ . #quechuatraditions #wildheart #westernart #existenceisresistance #elk #rewild #traditionallife #indigenouspride #intentionalcommunity #indigenous #ourcandidlife #plainsindians #plainsstyle #ancestralknowledge #septum #documentlife #nativeamerican #optoutside #outsidelands

@aztecadesignsboutique

A gal's hubby gave me his elk ivory and asked me to make something for his wife.... She likes big, hefty pieces and gravitates towards arrows, and points....so this is eventually what I made for her! A hand formed arrowhead, shaped with a titanium pick while keeping the silver soft under torch flame. Hand fabricated and soldered bezel, and twisted "rope" wire. This piece is hefty, and what a great way to showcase her husband's ivory. The hunt is how so many of us here in Laramie provide for our families and friends and fill the freezer with food for winter. We are blessed with the bounty of the land, and this is a great way to commemorate that, and remind us to be thankful for that provision. #AZTECADESIGNSBOUTIQUE #aztecadesignsLLC #custom #thankful #wastenothing #handfabricated #silver #silverwork #silversmith #metalsmith #arrowhead #elkivory #pendant

You guys voted earrings, I voted mountains. My 2019 archery bull. It feels good to finally make something for myself, instead of just keeping all the mistakes.

@brodyjhenderson

These are known as whistlers, eye teeth, buglers, or ivories. I pulled these from the bull I got last weekend. Elk ivories used to be a valuable trade commodity. If Iโ€™m able to keep elk hunting for another two or three decades, I might have a collection big enough that it could have been used to trade for a horse a couple hundred years ago. #meateater #fueledbynature #elkhunting #elkivory #history #americanhistory

So very fortunate to have made this for a dear friend, Amy, back in 2005 who was giving this to her husband, Jeff, as an anniversary gift / birthday gift. Amy had seen a necklace I made for another friend and asked if I could make a choker using Jeff's #elkivory. After several ideas, I finally came up with a layout. She wanted something masculine. So I used leather cords, turquoise, steel spacers, steel bead spikes, and warm kona wood beads with tribal patterns. After a few weeks and some anxious friends (they were getting nervous that I was holding back on the $ivory$), I gave it to Amy. A few days later, Jeff came into the bar where Amy worked and told me that he loved the choker. I told him that every bead used equaled in total to his age. The leather cord was made from elk. It was beautiful and I was proud of the work. Sadly, some years later, Jeff took his own life. After years of heartbreak, Amy did as well. It was so heartbreaking to hear. Before Amy passed, she said Jeff wore the choker all the time to where the cord wore out. She said Jeff had hoped I could fix it but I had just moved from Utah to Washington State. If I remember correctly, she said Jeff was laid to rest with the choker he ended up fixing himself. I will always remember this necklace/choker as the best I've ever made. If ever you have contemplated taking your own life or know of someone at risk, please reach out to someone you know first, someone willing to help first, and if no one willing THEN call the suicide awareness hotline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately. I know firsthand that it is hard to call and talk to someone you don't know (or when the phone number is busy) which is why I say someone you know first. A friend, family member even a random person on the street at that contemplation moment is the best bet to help. Please step in. Please offer the hand that saves. Thank you. Love you Jeff and Amy. #suicideprevention #suicidepreventionmonth #loveeachother #reachout #betherefirst #bethelight

I said my goodbyes to this very special custom piece yesterday. Seven Dwarfs Turquoise from @turquoisejewelryforsale, and Elk Ivory (cut/cabbed by me). I had so much fun with this one and couldnโ€™t be more excited and grateful for the sweet Soul it is going to. Thank you so much, Kristin @bluedragonflylanding. I have a few spots open right now for customs, if youโ€™ve been thinking about a special new piece for yourself or someone you love.

One day I asked my Dad if I could have some elk ivory. He came back with a big bag full, pieces he'd kept for years from hunting, to feed our family. Not because he enjoys hunting, which he does, but because our family believes it is better to hunt for your food, to face the death of the animal for who's meat you will consume, and to be thankful for what the earth provides. So I started making jewelry with the teeth he gave me. This one, with the antlers positioned somewhat like wings, is a tribute to that elk, and in a way, my thanks. . . . . . . . . #elk #elkivory #elkivoryjewelry #ivory #hunting #huntforyourfood #silverjewelry #silvernecklace #metalsmith #conscienciouscarnivore #antlerjewlery #silversmith #silver #instasmithy #jeweler #jewelrydesign #designjewelry #necklace #uniquejewelry #antlers #silverantlers #sterling

Elk ivory pendant! This was so different than the stones I usually use but I was really excited to give it a shot.

We donโ€™t know about you, but our minds are refreshed and our creativity is stirred by time in the outdoors. There is a unique tension between the need to create our pieces (which happens indoors) and the need to be inspired to create (which mainly happens outdoors). Balance between the two can be precarious, but when you love the inspiration and the art it inspires, itโ€™s a win-win! . . . . #hunt_az #azelk #safari #africa #africanwildlife #zebras #lions #lionclaws #sables #elephants #familypicture #southafrica #wildlife #ig_animals #jewelry #artofjewelry #jewelersofinstagram #sportsmancollection #huntingtradition #elkivoryjewelry #elkivory #elkhunting #huntingconservation #sci #booneandcrockett #popeandyoung #africangame #africansafari #plainsgame
