Product Overview

  This is a hand-engraved .925 silver American Totemic Indian cuff bracelet. Created by Northwest Coast Native artist, Travis Henry, this is a quintessentially West Coast jewelry item that makes a great gift. Your purchase will come with an artist biography. This cuff bracelet measures 3/4" wide and 6 1/4″ around with a 1″ opening; therefore, it will fit a wrist between 6 1/4" - 6 3/4" in circumference. The shape of the cuff can easily be adjusted, and 6" long fits most average-sized adults. It is signed on the inside.
Travis has been carving since 1982. He apprenticed with Patrick Seaweed for three months in 1987 and also worked with his brother Graham for six years. Travis carves silver and silver/gold combination jewellery including bracelets, rings, pins and pendants. He works in a Kwakwaka'wakw style since he has been living on Vancouver Island for most of his life.

Orca is associated with strength, prosperity and long life, it is identified by a large head, elongated nostrils, wide mouth and blowhole.

 Eagle is an important symbol to the Native cultures of the Northwest Coast. The Eagle is respected for its intelligence and power as well as its extraordinary vision, in both the literal and figurative senses. In myth, Eagle spirits are associated with lofty ideals and the pursuit of freedom.
