People tell me that they like to see my bracelets before they are shaped and polished, so that the entire design can be seen - Kwakiutl Sun Bracelet.

While editing my photographs I came across this portrait of Kwakiutl Chief Tony Hunt. He was one of the great artists of our time and a knew a great deal about our culture.

A Loon Pendant in silver with 24K gold inlays. 

In Kwakwak'awakw legends the Loon transports the Mink (the trickster / hero principle) under the water to emerge in another land. Our legends are full of interesting references to the supernatural.
