Eagle and Raven
Two bracelets by Haida artist Tom Greene Jr.
I made friends with Tommy while doing archaeology in Haida Gwaii.
He has since settled into making jewelry, truly excellent jewelry.
I don’t recall the occasion for the copper bracelet right now – perhaps just a gift for my partner after a longer field visit.
The silver was bought for our 30th wedding anniversary that was last month.
The copper is raven and silver is eagle. The two main clans, or moieties, of the Haida are raven and eagle, so it is a nice balance.
I blogged, with macro photos, about the copper bracelet when it was new – you can see the details here.
The phone did OK with this subject, though the reflections are a bit distracting.
I am in the field until mid-September, sometimes off grid but usually will be able to respond to comments and so on.
So, keep the comments coming!
