Kingfisher Necklace & Earrings

Blue Jasper from Prince of Wales Island, AK, Labradorite, Citrine, Kyanite, Iolite, Glass Seed Beads, Sterling Silver, Grout

“Last year I was adopted into a Tlingit family and given the Tlingit name, Tlaxaneis, which means ‘kingfisher.’ This blue jasper from SE Alaska was mined, cut and polished by Gary McWilliams, along with the eudialyte in my ‘Kaanaltaas’ at the Opera’ necklace. To me, the blue jasper with the little bit of white looks like the belly of a belted kingfisher.”
