These Raven Stud Earrings have been hand-carved by Haida artist Amy Edgars. The earrings have been carved in argillite and feature 2 abalone inlays in total.
Mischievous and curious, the Raven plays many important roles in Pacific Northwest Coast Culture. For some, he symbolizes creation, transformation, knowledge, prestige as well as the complexity of nature and the subtlety of truth.
Argillite is a very rare medium - there is only one argillite quarry in Canada, and it is in Haida Gwaii. The Haida own the exclusive rights to use argillite and it has become a sculptural tradition among Haida people.
