Foxy Fossils creates elegant fossil jewelry for men and women featuring authentic prehistoric fossils dating back millions of years and found by Foxy Fossils in Charleston, SC. Casey Garvin is the Founder, Finder, and Designer of Foxy Fossils and has been an avid fossil hunter and collector for much of her life. Growing up on the southeast coast, Casey has spent countless hours exploring the marshes, creeks, and beaches collecting shells, fossils, and other gifts from nature. Having a background in speech-language pathology, she used her skillset to research and identify the various fossils she collected as well as joining a paleontological society in Charleston, SC.

Casey began Foxy Fossils in 2016 as a way to share her passion for fossils with others. Foxy Fossils’ signature pieces include the Vertebracelet which features a real fossil shark vertebra on a leather bracelet for both men and women, the stingray barb bar style necklace, hemipristis serra (AKA “snaggletooth”) shark tooth cufflinks, and the Ravenel Bridge Stingray Mouth Plate earrings to name a few.  Each piece is truly “epoch” and combines prehistoric with present-day designs.

Casey Garvin

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 collecting shells, rocks, driftwood, and fossils with her older brother Corey.
Casey wanted to share her intrinsic passion for fossil collecting and identifying with others which led to Foxy Fossils being born. 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 a 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 joined the Palmetto Paleontological Society and has donated hundreds of fossils to local schools and events.
