Intaglia is a lost 13th Century jewelry-making technique reserved specifically for royalty in China.
Historically, these jewelry pieces were made of Elephant Ivory, Jade, and Gold. However, I have chosen to incorporate Fossil Ivories, (both Mammoth, Rare Mastodon and Walrus), Exotic Woods, and Gemstones from around the world.
Each piece is created from multiple layers of Fossil Ivory, exotic woods and gemstone materials. Then these layers are pinned together using fossil ivory pins or stainless steel pins, and shaped to make the special one of a kind creation.
I am the only artist, I know of who makes this style of Jewelry from Fossil Ivory.
