Solid sterling silver tooth from my German shepard 'Ali' circa. 1988, hanging off a hand carved resin arch. This is an amulet that encourages you to move forward to a new phase in life - Initiations and strength. The tooth symbolises protection, perseverance and power - So step-up...
A one off wonder.
From the AW20 collection Astral Ancestors:
The inspiration for the Astral Ancestors collection is a scent - A perfumed oil that captures the spirit of an imagined journey - From the Earth's Core to Outer Space.
"There was something undefined and complete, existing before Heaven and Earth. How still it was, how formless, standing alone and undergoing no change, reaching everywhere with no danger of being exhausted. It may be regarded as the mother of all things. Truthfully it has no name, but I call it Tao." (Tsu, 1972)

Vetiver and frankincense - The earth, caves and fields.
Lavender and neroli - Flora and fauna.
Cedarwood, sandalwood and fir - The trees reaching up.
Geranium - Stratosphere
Birch tar - Moon
