Made in Alaska

fi0109092

This is one of the most amazing pieces of vintage jewelry I have ever acquired.  I had mentioned this brooch earlier this week when describing my adventures in San Francisco.  It is made of a hand-carved piece of wood and what I am guessing is fox fur.  On the back, there is an carved emblem which represents the indigenous Alaskan people who created this masterpiece.

The craftsmanship is nothing short of impressive and I wish we could develop more fair-trade organizations that could  support indigenous communities who made  beautiful authentic jewelry as I was so lucky to come across.
