This buckle features an eagle head motif made from fossilized wooly mammoth ivory, set in a fine bezel of hand-pierced and carved sterling silver overlay. Found in Alaska, the fossilized ivory from the extinct wooly mammoth dates at a minimum of 10,000 years old; Downey’s careful handwork beautifully and delicately reveals the texture, subtle range of color, and smooth, organic, almost fibrous structure of the ivory. In a clever twist, the eagle’s eye was made from jet—which is tens of millions of years older than even the fossilized ivory.
