This Tufted puffin is intricately scrimshawed onto black acrylic. Also known as the crested puffin, this seabird boasts impressive plumes that give a crown-like appearance. This bird is looking forward with it’s head tilted to the side as if trying to get a better look at something out of view. The brightly colored beak and detailing of the feathers adds to the uniqueness of this one-of-a-kind piece.
‘Tufted Puffin’ measures 1 1/2″ x7/8″ and is teardrop shaped with rounded edges. The bale is hand beaded with glass beads. This pendant comes in a gift box.
To care for your scrimshaw, I recommend you never wear a scrimshaw piece in swimming or the shower. Also, for genuine ivory pieces it is best not to leave it sitting in direct sunlight or exposed to the intense heat, like that of a vehicle in the summer. Ivory is a natural material and deserves to be cherished. I use the most permanent inks available for my artwork and I have applied several layers of Renaissance wax to preserve the colors. The pieces made using black acrylic have a durable resin coating. Each hand etched piece comes ready to wrap in a gift box.
