Elk Ivory Jewelry

Ed Barbula, Silversmith, excels in designing jewelry made with the ivory teeth of elk. This is the only North American animal with ivory teeth. Ed caps the root of the tooth and adds semi-precious stones to the cap, or cuts off the root and uses the end for his jewelry. If the tooth is hollow, Ed incorporates a second cut slab into an inlay artform. He uses lapis, turquoise, onyx, and malachite to inlay a splash of color into the ivory. Each piece becomes an original shaped work of art.
