Look into getting some cufflinks made! Any local jeweler should be able to do that.

Dennis Jewelry in San Antonio made some for me...

Kim Hunter she is out of state. She is one of the best I could find and would trust. She did two pendants for a necklace for my mother in law And one for my wife out of ivoryís from my late father in laws last bull elk in Colorado. Tell her Travis shannon sent ya. My wife has had her make jewelry after I got the necklaces done.

I used a guy here in Lindale several years ago. He made a set of ear rings for my wife. Had the ivories from our honeymoon 14 years earlier in the safe and a month or so before our anniversary the girls in the office were asking me what I was going to get my wife and how many years it was! I told them no clue and 14 I believe it was. One said that's the ivory anniversary and fat chance on getting ivory! I remembered the teeth in the safe and figured 14 years later was as good a time as any to get something done! Guy didn't charge much at all and the old lady loved em! I don't think I've bought her jewelry since then. How am I gonna top that!!

Check out some western engravers/silversmiths. I have seen some very very cool stuff done with ivories.

I canít remember what I paid but it was really reasonable. Kim does amazing work and keeps you in the loop all the way through the process. We will be using her again real soon my wife will be hunting a bull in a couple months.

Good deal you will be pleased. I was nervous to send them to anyone because my father-in-law had passed when my wife was 9 and these meant a lot to her and my mother-in-law. She did an amazing job and won our business from know on.
