Haven't got around to stringing them all.

I've never really held on to the ivories.. Do you have to do something to treat them like a varnish or something? I would imagine over time they might become brittle or fragile.

Paul, it’s Tiger’s Eye.

CHH, I’ve never treated any of my ivories, including the necklace and ring I had made. They’re as solid as ever, so the original owners must have practiced good dental hygiene. ;-)

Birthday present for my late wife.

One thing about ivories, if the jewelry is worn where it gets friction, ie. a ring, the colored rings will fade and sometimes disappear altogether. You can partially restore it by putting them in damp coffee grounds for a couple days. Won't affect the metal, but will bring back the brown rings.

Bowonly x2, but I will finish it. Got some bears teeth and tiny antlers to add, and some coyotes teeth in a bag somewhere in my craft stuff.

How do you guys polish your ivories/teeth? Would putting them in a brass casing tumbler work, or would that do more damage than good?

From: TrapperKayak

They are already polished, I just take a knife and scrape off all the tissue around the root. They are harder than regular tooth enamel. Don't use a standard drill to make the holes, you will crack them. Use a Dremel on high speed with a sharp new bit, a small circular one works well.

If you try to polish ivories it will remove some of the color rings. I've had a few jewelry pieces made for my late wife and daughter and just buffed them shiny on a piece of denim.

If you want to have something made check out Classic Creations. His name is Frank Mcubbins and is probably the best in the biz.

Had necklaces made for each of my three daughters for this last Christmas, similar to Huntabs... pic above but set in gold with a gold chain. They don't need polishing. Just clean them and boil them clean and they are ready to display.

Some good ideas here. I've had these guys make some stuff for me.

Personally I like cut ivory versions over using the entire Ivory

Pretty cool stuff, Smoked Trout!

I would love to get something made incorporating an elk ivory with one of the stone arrow heads I've found.
