|I made this one on Mother's Day weekend at the beach. It goes with my royal blue clothes. :)|
|This was for my Sister, for her birthday!|
|I adore the earrings!|
|This is for my black and white polka dot dress.|
|The white beads in the jewelry is elephant ivory.|
My grandparents were in the import/export business. They imported elephant ivory legally (I have paper work) in the 1970's. I have a box full of scrimshaw or "blanks" for carving. I do not know what to do with all of it. I have used two little strands of beads for jewelry, for myself. As beautiful as the ivory beads are, it seems strange and sad that smart and wonderful elephants have given their lives for their tusks. Not sure what's the right thing to do. I hate being responsible for that box of ivory.
