    Bibi Van Der Velden

    Mammoth Alligator Bite Necklace

    Inspired by the beauty of imperfection, Bibi van der Velden sculpts exotic materials into one-of-a-kind jewelry evoking her respect for our natural world.

    As versatile as it is fiercely glamorous, this alligator can be worn both as a necklace (biting into an 18k gold chain) or a distinctly edgy earring. Effortlessly hanging from its chain or wearer, the alligator’s articulated tail movement gives it a lifelike touch. The alligator is carved in 60,000-year-old mammoth tusk and 18k yellow gold, with green tsavorite eyes.
