These Butterfly Earrings have been hand-carved by Haida artist Amy Edgars. The earrings have been carved in argillite and feature 8 abalone inlays in total.
The Native Butterfly symbolizes transformation, metamorphosis, beauty, balance, and grace.
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.
