Handcrafted sterling silver bracelet by Saulteaux artist Kelvin Thompson.
Kelvin Thompson, born in Ebbenflow, Manitoba in 1958, is a renowned First Nations
carver, part of the Saulteaux Nation by birth and adopted into the Haisla Nation of northern British Columbia. Kelvin began carving in 1978 and studied under well-known Haisla jewelers Barry and Derek Wilson, and helped carve a totem pole with Master Carver Henry Robinson in 1980. Kelvin is passionate about passing skills and information on to younger carvers in order to preserve the First Nations craft and the culture around it, and he has been involved in teaching new artists in recent years. Today, Kelvin carves silver and gold jewelry, as well as bowls and masks made from alder, maple, and cedar.
