Usually one doesn't think of birchbark as the basis for a great pair of earrings, but here you are. These are very unique and interesting to me--especially as I'm a jewelry designer myself. The beadwork and quillwork is intricate and handsewn and they are just so interesting. There is a long history of Native American art and culture in this area. I can't imagine using porpucine quills the way this artist did; they are so small and perfectly patterned.
