otolith, sterling silver, ptarmigan feather, leather


These earrings are made from leather on sterling silver hooks surrounding an otolith, the inner earbone of a fish that has been collected by Becky from Great Slave Lake. It is embellished with the feather of a ptarmigan bird. 

 

Becky moved from Saskatchewan to Yellowknife in 2008. Her Métis ancestry influences her life in various ways, including in her roles as a commercial fisherman and artist. Since she started making otolith jewelry in 2017, Becky’s has displayed and sold her pieces at the Yellowknife Farmers Market - alongside smoked fish and berries and other harvested goods - as well as at the Gallery of the Midnight Sun and Just Furs. Her art was exhibited for the first time at the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre (NACC) in 2021.
