Ebony is a luscious hardwood revered for finely carved and polished crafts, from furniture to art, musical instruments, and many other decorative pieces. The nearly pitch black wood is found beneath the unassuming bark of the tree. Only when the magnificent trunk it split open, is the prized material exposed. Sadly Ebony has been largely deforested and is rightfully, now a protected species. We use only ethically repurposed Ebony for our designs. This 1 1/8” x 1” shark tooth is hand carved out of vintage ebony and wrapped with sterling silver. It is strung on 20” natural cotton cord with an engraved recycled sterling silver button closure.
