International woman of style and social responsibility, Péan travels the world for sources of material and inspiration. The genesis of these exceptional earrings came during a trip to Alaska where the designer learned about fossilized woolly mammoth ivory from the Arctic Circle and met the craftsman who carves the specimens in the scrimshaw style of eighteenth century sailors. Throw in a passion for French Polynesian arts and crafts and you have a global story of gorgeousness.
