Zealandia Designs Jewelry
Jenny Byrne, Zealandia Design's creator and lead designer, is inspired by nature, spiritual and mythological art, and history, creating statement jewelry that honors our earth and her wondrous natural materials. Due to variations in both the fossil colors and the carver’s style, every piece of hand carved fossil jewelry is unique.
Zealandia jewelry is made from ancient fossilized walrus and mammoth ivory. These animals have been deceased from anywhere between 500 to over 15,000 years, and their ivory has lain in the earth or permafrost for centuries where it gathers its unique coloring from the surrounding environment.
