Not the bear, not the wolf - the deer, according to ancient Celtic tradition, is king of animals and forests; his strength made it necessary to measure who wanted to become the leader.

Red and fallow deer still live in our forests; with a little luck, you can see one of them on forest walks.

Deer bones have a rather cool, quiet presence. They connect with the forest, with the present, with an attentive force.

Carving female figures out of mammoth ivory is a millennia-old tradition. The oldest found figure is about 35,000 years old! Such a piece of jewelry can convey to the wearer something of the power of the mighty beast; the roundish female figure is a symbol of the abundance of nature and the request to participate in this abundance. So it can also be described as hunting magic, in a broader sense as a success amulet.

Moreover, the historical role models - mostly fat, older women - point to a social fertility that goes beyond the physical: the older woman, no longer engaged in child raising, becomes free again for the community, with her own personal knowledge and ability can engage in a more comprehensive, far-sighted way and is free in her power.

Mammoth ivory has an energizing and warm effect. It can be worn well on bare skin.

Each piece of jewelry is a unique piece, hand-drawn and worked.
