These stunning necklace & earring sets are very unique because each piece of seal skin is hand cut from a pelt and every pelt is different. Then they are paired with sparkling gems and silver chains. We currently are using three different colored pelts, natural(grey with black spots), green and black. The seal pelts are bought from a tannery in Dildo, Newfoundland.
There is such beauty in a seal leather pelt, it has a shiny smooth texture which resembles a glistening stone from the sea. Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have been hunting seals for hundreds of years now and using every bit of the animal, the meat to feed their families, the bones to carve sculptures and tools with and the leather to keep them warm. We forget to look into the facts sometimes these days and just jump on whatever someone says is true and posts on the internet. There are millions of these beautiful animals in NL so they are by far not an endangered species.
If you see a piece that is sold or would like a different color/bead we can custom design that perfect piece for you.
