Product Description:

All of our jewellery by Richard Krentz is handcrafted in the Comox Valley, in the same way it has been done for the last 20 years. The bracelet is carved with an engraver into 20 gauge or 0.8 millimetre thick sterling silver. It weighs about 1/2 an ounce or a little over 14 grammes. After engraving, the silver bracelet is hand sanded and polished until it has a smooth and shiny surface. The bracelet is close to 14.6cm long without the gap and 1/2 an inch wide. In Coast Salish Culture the eagle traditionally represents strength and vision. It protects the spirit and the body, representing health and wholeness of being. It signifies the person who rises above the petty details of daily life to take in the big picture. Richard Krentz, whose name is kwátám-us in the Coast Salish language of the Sechelt Nation, is a man of two worlds: he is one of Canada's most renowned aboriginal artists; he is also a natural entrepreneur. Richard is well known for his beautiful gold and silver jewellery as well as for his wood carving skills. He has built over 20 longhouses and many totem poles. The largest of which is the tallest totem pole of the world which stands in Victoria, BC, Canada. Richard lives in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The Pacific Northwest Coast Native Cultures like the Coast Salish, Haida, Kwakwaka´wakw, Makah and many others are famous for their beautiful designs and fine jewellery. High quality rings, bracelets, earrings and pendants made of silver and gold are highly valued all over the world. In these Native American Cultures jewellery is still used today in ceremonies and everyday life, to represent wealth and high standing. These Pacific Northwest Coast Native First Nations are situated on Vancouver Island, the West Coast and Interior of B.C., Haida Gwaii, Alaska and the Northwest Coast of the USA.
