Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use real fossils in each piece of jewelry?
YES!! Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted using real prehistoric fossils hand-collected by me. Your piece will contain a prehistoric piece of Charleston dating back hundreds of thousands to millions of years old. All fossils are legally & responsibly sourced.
Do you have to go out looking for fossils in order to create jewelry?
No!! Foxy Fossils is centered around my passion for all things coastal which includes conservation and respecting natural habitats and environments. The fossils used to create jewelry are a small portion of my own personal lifelong collection. No areas are depleted, destroyed, or altered in any way to create the jewelry pieces. I have collected many hundreds of thousands of shark teeth fossils (not including the hundreds of other types of fossils I have found) in my life so far.
Are your fossils ethically sourced?
YES!! Fossils, especially fossil shark teeth, are very abundant in the Lowcountry and can be found almost anywhere! Since some species of sharks can go through ~35,000 teeth in a lifetime (and multiply this by millions and millions of years), Foxy Fossils jewelry pieces do not deplete the natural supply of fossils nor do we alter or disturb the environment, animals or habitats that surround where I fossil hunt. Also, Casey is very keen on marine conservation and habitat protection and all fossils are legally and sustainably collected.
How old are the fossils?
In order for a shark tooth or remnant to be considered a fossil, it must be at least 10,000 years old. Most fossils used in the making of Foxy Fossils jewelry date back millions and millions of years in age. Each piece is so unique, but on average the shark teeth fossils we use date back approximately 5-20 million years ago. No sharks or animals are harmed in the collection or use of any fossils.
If I have a shark tooth I found, can it be made into a custom piece of jewelry?
YES!! I love creating custom jewelry pieces using a special fossil you have found. The possibilities are endless and I will work closely with you to ensure you are highly satisfied with the design!
