Handcarved and crafted sterling silver earrings by Gilbert Pat.

Gilbert Pat, born in Sardis, British Columbia in 1945, is a well-known Northwest Coast jewelry artist of the Coast Salish Nation. After moving to Alert Bay and working as a carpenter and commercial fisherman, he began carving in 1976. He is mainly self-taught, but was mentored by Lloyd Wadhams Sr. of the celebrated Seaweed and Shaughnessy families, from whom he learned to carve with fine detail and high craftsmanship. He works primarily in silver, and his work is widely recognized for its whimsical carvings that incorporate traditional Salish design elements.
