I found this amazing (60's-70's?) bracelet a few years ago and wear it w/the handmade ivory/sterling mid-century bracelet and NOW that I've searched this wonderful website - 2 bone bracelets that I always thought were ivory. Also a pictured camel etched on ivory w/sterling cut-out filligree ring. I think this was probably a tourist piece from Egypt? It's pretty cool.
There's a neighborhood bar a few miles down the road with an amazing collection of scrimshaw. We enjoy live music there & I always stand in front of the case and memorize each piece again. My boyfriend is used to my routine. He's probably memorized them as well waiting for me...
They used to have a hand-gun collection too. That creeped me out. I never stood in awe in front of that case....now gone - I'm sure for insurance and patron preference reasons? Anyway! I love my gorgeous scrimshaw bracelet and other ivory/bone pieces.
