~Claws, Teeth, Bones~

Across the human story, claws, teeth, bones and other animal remains have traditionally been worn to showcase a variety of things. One’s hunting prowess, social standing, medicinal knowledge, or place of origin could be assessed before a single word was spoken during an interaction. Nowadays, the wearing of these materials has become mostly symbolic. We’d like to think of wearing these materials as a form of respect paid to the animals for their contributions to our world, and serve as a potent reminder of the lessons that each being teaches us.

~Sajen Jewelry~

The Sajen company was founded by Marianna and Richard Jacobs in the 1980s while living in Bali, Indonesia. The name Sajen translates to "offerings", inspired by the Balinese practice of creating beautiful offerings each day to appease their gods and create balance. 

 

DISCLAIMER: Any and all animal specimens that we use in our designs are ethically sourced, either found in nature predeceased by natural causes or sourced from an ethical handler. WE NEVER HARM OR KILL ANIMALS FOR THE SAKE OF OUR ART. The purpose of including animal remains in our designs is to honor the animal's being and speak upon the lessons they teach us in life. 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
