First Nations Sterling Silver Orca 1” Cuff Bracelet

Travis Henry is a well-known Indigenous artist from the Cowichan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. He is a member of the Cowichan Tribes, Coast Salish Nation.

 

Travis has been carving jewelry for over 16 years. He was mentored by Kwakwaka’wakw artist Patrick Seaweed, which has greatly influenced his work. His work reflects a blend of Kwakwaka’wakw and Coast Salish influences. Travis is best known for his bold, deep, clean lines and highly detailed designs.

His work is on display in galleries throughout the Northwest Coast, Japan, and Europe. Travis uses the Kwakwaka’wakw style when carving. Kwakwaka’wakw is one of the more distinct artistic styles from the northwest coast. From the use of bright colours to heavy expressions, Coast Salish Peoples have developed and passed down this art style for thousands of years.

Although Kwakwaka’wakw artists make use of many materials from bone to wood, Travis is known for his work with sterling silver and gold. His traditional style is apparent in his use of crisp, clean lines. If you like more minimal jewelry with close attention to detail, be sure to take a look at Travis’s collection
