One of a kind earrings, handmade in AK by Sonya Kelliher-Combs. This pair is delicately made with salmon skin and beautiful beadwork.
About the Artist: Growing up in Nome, Alaska, Sonya spent summers at her family's camp where they worked, hunted and gathered food and supplies for the winter. It was there where she learned to listen; listened to learn from family, community members and nature. Through observation and the practice of time-honored traditions -- skin sewing, beading, and food preparation -- Sonya realized her role as Woman, Daughter, Sister, Wife and Artist. Sonya is inspired by the relationship of her ancestors to their environment -- how they used skin, fur and membrane in material culture
