Corrine Hunt Silver Jewelry December 23 2012, 2 Comments

Kwakwaka'wakw-Tlingit artist Corrine Hunt has released a line of abstracted cast jewelry that is both affordable and incredibly unique. The best thing about this line of jewelry is that it is made from a silver-pewter alloy that will not tarnish. Ranging in price from $50-$75 CAD, this is a great opportunity to own something created by the artist who designed the medals for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. 

Corrine's grandmother is A’neesla’ga (a Tlingit noblewoman from Alaska). Her uncle is engraver Norman Brotchie. Corrine has lived in the Vancouver area since 1975, graduating from high school and continuing her education at Simon Fraser University, majoring in Anthropology. Norman Brotchie sparked her interest in creating art with his beautifully hand-engraved jewelry and was instrumental in introducing her to Kwakwaka'wakw art. Corrine sells to galleries throughout North America and her work is collected around the world. In 2006, she designed the logo for the World Peace Forum, which was held in Vancouver. She also has large installations at Whistler's Hilton Hotel and at the office for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC).
