AK Native-made Jewelry

Shearwater gallery has a lovely selection of authentic Alaska Native-made jewelry. Here are a few of my favorites:

Elegant Baleen and walrus ivory earrings by George Wicher of Kodiak/Anchorage.
Carved Walrus ivory earrings by Ken Kiyutelluk of Shishmaref, AK.
Spotted seal, polar bear, and Wolverine earrings (and more) by Marilyn Kuzuguk of Shishmaref, AK.

Always insist on seeing the authenticity tags when purchasing Authentic Alaska Native-made products so you know that the ivory, baleen and other animal products were legally harvested by Alaska Native people. It is illegal to label any item Native-made or Indian-made if it is not made by a recognized tribe member.
