Product Overview

Our Hanging Bear mammoth ivory necklace is inspired both by the polar bear and by an ancient creature, the great mammoth. The fossilized mammoth ivory used to carve our hanging polar bear is over 15,000 years old and has lain buried underground for centuries long after the great mammoths became extinct.

The Native Inuit people of Alaska, Canada, and Greenland have a deep and rich mythology tied to the polar bear, a source of strength, courage, and sustenance to them. The polar is said to be able to assume human form and revert back to bear form at will. Myth tells of him being the first to teach the Inuit how to hunt seal. He is a teacher, guide, and source of inspiration.
