Barrettes & Hairsticks

Barrettes & Hairsticks

Beautiful, wearable art pieces that do what they're designed to do, hold your hair. Clever two-prong hairsticks that won't budge in a ground blizzard, adorable beaded flower clips to coordinate with your midnight sun dress and an array of classic French-back clip barrettes in bone, glass, musk ox horn and more.

Natural Jewelry

Natural Jewelry

Showcasing the materials, rather than a craft method or artistic vision, these earrings, pendants and zipper pulls allow the unique claw, tooth, walrus whisker, antler, ivory, bone, horn, quill or shell to speak for itself.

Artistic Jewelry

Artistic Jewelry

Here we feature the pieces that are more than the sum of the parts. You've seen these materials before, but these artists take them to new heights, creating truly Artist-Inspired jewelry.

Alaskan Jewelry

Alaskan Jewelry

Okay, "traditional" understates some of the truly contemporary artists presented here. We're trying to group the classic mediums--scrimshaw, carving, beading--as well as the classically Alaskan materials--bone, ivory, antler--to present the jewelry that shows its Alaskan origins.

Look for classic whale tails, billikens, carved walrus teeth as well as a range of scrimshaw, Alaskan-style fish hooks, and Native-made jewelry.
