We love a good statement earring at Copper Canoe Woman, but sometimes statement just isn’t ENOUGH statement, which is why we are offering these rare ‘Aunty Copper’ earrings for a limited time. Choose from select pre-made colors (while supplies last), or purchase a made-to-order color option. Only sixteen made-to-order slots will be available.

The cross-hatch etched design is used in Northwest Coast Formline Art, and the flower design is representative of native Pacific Northwest wild roses also known as the ‘Nootka Rose.’ The copper shield at the center honors the ancestors and systems of wealth, while the ermine pelts are an additional sign of status and beauty in Vina’s culture.
