Classy earrings, but what are they?  Porcupine quills?  Noooo---how about WALRUS WHISKERS! - YES!  Would you kiss a walrus with whiskers like these?  I don't think so!  We now have them available for sale, see below!  Here's some really cool information about how walrus use their whiskers:  

When foraging, walruses dive to the bottom and comb through the silt and sand for shellfish with flippers pointed skyward. Eyes closed tight against the billowing clouds of silt they kick up while feeding, walruses root about with some 480-odd vibrissae roughly the texture of uncooked spaghetti to locate shellfish as small as a couple of centimeters long.  They use their whiskers like chopsticks to manipulate the clams they find.  Walrus follow the edge of pack ice each year and are found mostly in the Bering Sea near St. Lawrence Island, Alaska.

Blindfolded walruses could tell the difference between flat circles and triangles half the size of an M&M. With muscle fibers crisscrossed in all directions like the beams of the Eiffel tower, they can control each individual vibrissa. It’s amazing to see what they can do. Drop a piece of squid on the edge of a walrus’s vibrissae pads, and it will broom the morsel mouthward with a few quick jerks of its whisker hairs.

Walrus whisker photo.jpg (18088 bytes) 

Blindfolded by ear protectors, a walrus uses its broom-stiff whiskers to distinguish between tiny shapes on a patterned panel. 

GENUINE WALRUS WHISKER EARRINGS FOR SALE

Whiskers made into earrings by Alaskan Native CHARITY BELL of Brevig Mission, Alaska.  Remember, Alaskan natives catch the walrus and use as much as humanly possible (whether it is eaten, made into functional items or art, the rest is returned to the sea), this is a very creative way.

Made with gold or silver alloy hypoallergenic French wires, tiny glass beads of various colors as accents, they average 2 to 3" long.

MORE ABOUT 

EDDIE LEE, artist

Born in the Emerald City of Nha-Trang, South Vietnam in 1960, he left Saigon in 1978 with a young man's heart.  He found a permanent, spiritual home in the great Pacific Northwest.  With no "great plan" and great determination to survive, Eddie privately created his art, never imagining that his passion for art would merge with his profession in such a spectacular fashion.  It was age 14 that Eddie began expressing his own creativity through nature.  As a Boy Scout, he spent hours in nature sketching and carving what he saw.

Settling in Seattle in 1979, Eddie became an American citizen and traveled extensively to seek inspiration among the indigenous people of Alaska and North Pacific Coast.  In the past 20 years, he has devoted most of his time to researching traditional native art forms and creating his own extraordinary impressions.

Every piece created by Eddie is an original, painstakingly hand-crafted by him.  He loves to work with soapstone and alabaster and collects his rough material from all over the world.  He also uses unusual media for his carvings, including fossilized walrus, woolly mammoth bone and ivory dug by native people of the Siberia and Bering Sea areas.

In 1983, Eddie established his own gallery in Seattle's Pioneer Square, becoming widely respected by art lovers and collectors from all around the world.  He has been featured in a 15-minute prime time feature on Seattle's KIRO Eyewitness News, and a 20-minute prime time feature on Seattle's PBS station.

In his own words, "Recreating the forms of Mother Nature by using her basic elements is my way of celebrating and sharing the many gifts she has given me".

 

Here is a recent acquisition that is quite unusual - it is a 10,000 year old walrus tusk from Alaska that has been hand carved (in Bali) on the top into 20 hammerhead sharks that are all still attached.  Exquisite carving is without flaw...here it is from the back, then the front:

and from the other side:

and on the ebony and inlaid paua shell base that makes it look like a shark from above.  It also has its own carrying case (hand made; not shown)
