Grandma Rose earrings by Maria Rose Sikyea
From Maria: Grandma Rose earrings ~ Brightful hope of making her proud, in spirit, holding my hand, as I walk forward as a Dené Artisan. Even if I did not meet her, she is a felt presence; while I sew and work hard for the betterment of my Dené children. My Dad’s memories, the bit he has shared, is of watching her sew everyday, all the time and what he has expressed, has fueled me forward. Gratitude. These are also super lightweight, rather small, for intention of being able to wear everyday and are gold ear wires for anyone sensitive to other metals. These are made with: blue crystals, coloured porcupine quills, coloured caribou hair, vintage pale pink opal rare french beads 13/0, vintage opaque pale mustard yellow Venetian glass beads, hometanned smoked moosehide, 14k gold filled findings, teal 100% silk tassels and lots of tlc.
