Silver with abalone eye. Handmade using repousse and chasing. Traditional Kwak'waka'wakw design.
Repoussé is used to shape a piece of metal by working on the reverse of the metal with small hammers to form a raised design on the front. Chasing is is the opposite technique used to refine the design on the front of the work by hammering to sink the metal.
