Mammoth Ivory Impressions: Unique handmade jewellery created using prehistoric ethical Woolly Mammoth ivory in Aryn Bower's studio in Gabriola, British Columbia.

Ancestors of the modern Elephant, the extinct Woolly Mammoth roamed around in herds about 11.000 years ago. A recent dramatic increase in Elephant poaching makes it more important than ever to support ethical alternatives.  

Canadian artist Aryn Bowers uses mammoth ivory sourced from the Klondike mining area of the Yukon Territory, Canada. He combines it with inlays of ammolite, turquoise, and coloured resins to create his classic designs.
