Scrimshaw Mammoth Ivory Scissor Fob

Dave made this inspirational scissor fob by scrimshawing (etching with ink) on a ingot of ancient woolly mammoth ivory. I beaded it using 49 strand platinum professional beading wire with Butterfly Swarovski crystal beads and round rose quartz beads. The overall length is about 4 ½ inches long. The scissors in the photo are for display purposes only.

This scissor fob is currently up for auction on Ebay!
