About Foxy Fossils

Foxy Fossils creates elegant fossil jewelry for men and women that feature authentic prehistoric fossils dating back millions of years. An avid fossil hunter for much of her life, Casey Garvin is the founder, finder, and designer of Foxy Fossils. Growing up on the southeast coast, Casey has spent countless hours exploring the marshes, creeks, and beaches that has led to an astounding collection of shells, fossils, and other gifts from nature. Using her background in speech-language pathology, she applied her skill set to research and identify the various fossils and even go on to become a paleontological society member here in Charleston, SC.

Casey began Foxy Fossils in 2016 as a way to share her passion for fossils with the community. Foxy Fossils’ signature pieces include the Vertebracelet, the stingray barb bar style necklace, hemipristis serra (AKA “snaggletooth”) shark tooth cuff links, and the Ravenel Bridge Stingray Mouth Plate earrings to name a few.  Each piece is truly “epoch” and effortlessly combines prehistoric with present-day designs to create elegant, timeless accessories.

Founder - Finder - Designer

Foxy Fossils is a unique brand of adventure, natural history, and innovative jewelry designs located in Charleston, SC. The brand was created by Casey Garvin, who is passionate about exploring the outdoors and collecting natural treasures along the way. A saltwater lover since the day she was born, Casey has spent countless hours exploring the coast and collecting shells, rocks, driftwood, and fossils.  Wanting to share her intrinsic passion for fossil collecting and identifying with others, Casey started Foxy Fossils, which has captured the attention and interest of nature and shark-lovers across all ages.
Foxy Fossils is multifaceted and includes more than just beautiful handmade fossil jewelry. It encompasses Casey's years of exploring the outdoors in Charleston, hunting and collecting prehistoric fossils, researching and identifying fossils, and of course sharing a glimpse of her personal fossil collection in her original jewelry designs. 

Casey earned her Bachelor's & Master's at the University of Georgia and is an ASHA certified speech-language pathologist. Having studied a great deal of anatomy and physiology, Casey began recognizing similarities between human anatomy and fossils she was finding (e.g. palates, vertebrae, dentition). Her natural interest in science and nature inspired her to learn more about specific fossils and the species that once roamed the Lowcountry. She has done years of self-study paleontology, consults with a local friend and paleontologist, joined the Palmetto Paleontological Society, and has donated hundreds of fossils to local schools and events. 


Fossils found and collected by Foxy Fossils for use in handcrafting original artisan jewelry are hunted on private land spots with permission from land owners and collecting does not disrupt the natural archaeological framework of the sites hunted. Fossils are found on land surfaces and are collected by hand.  Foxy Fossils holds her Hobby Diver License for the state of South Carolina and reports any (if any) submerged paleontological findings to the South Carolina Museum Commission on a quarterly basis in accordance with the South Carolina Underwater Antiquities Act of 1991.  ​
