This is a collaborative piece of work between two women artists. Carla Maxmuwidzumga and Rosie Harris.
Carla is of Musgamagw Dzawada'enuxw and Nisga'a ancestry . Maxmuwidzumga is the traditional name that bestowed upon her, roughly translated to "leaves a part of herself wherever she goes - her essence, her wisdom" from the Kwakwala language. She was raised immersed in the richness of the Kwakwaka'wakw language, culture, values and traditions.
She lives on the traditional unceded territory of the K'omoks and Pentlatch tribes and is a Kwakwala instructor at the North Island College.
Rosie Harris is a Vancouver Island based artist who fell in love with the art of metal work upon first introduction to the craft.
A lover of recreation and the outdoors; She is continuously inspired by exploring the beautiful west coast where she enjoys spending time with her family.
She completed three years at Vancouver Community College, where she received her diploma in Jewelry Art and Design and an award for best design for her water inspired jewelry display.
And she has never stopped designing water inspired jewelry.
Together Rosie and Carla create one-of-a-kind and limited edition beaded fine jewelry. Rosie designs and creates the metalwork, while Carla finishes the pieces by embellishing them with her beautiful beadwork
