Tania Larsson starts with the land. Her materials are harvested from nature, then combined with silver, gold, and precious stones. The combination of traditional craft with a contemporary education results in striking, intricate adornment.

“My heritage is an integral part of who I am and my work,” said Tania Larsson in an interview with UNUM Magazine. “I wanted to present myself as a Gwich’in woman and needed cultural indicators that could be worn anywhere.”

Larsson maintains a studio in Yellowknife, but she hand delivers her jewelry works to our gallery shop. View some of our favorites below.

Design Spotlights & Introductions!

Lisa Klakulak is an avid traveler, and often draws inspiration from far-flung landscapes to create stunning fiber artworks. In the past, she’s crafted wearables that evoke lava flows and glaciers. This fall, Lisa debuts a series that draws from the vernacular of the human body. The new works reflect the soft textures and hues of hair and skin.

“Attracted by its protective and nurturing qualities, I found wool fiber a relevant material to use in my work that’s related to concepts of human vulnerability and security,” Lisa says. “I attribute the sense of contentment and calm that I feel when I’m working in the studio to the constant touch involved in the process, as well as bringing an idea into fruition. You need that idea, that inspiration.”

“The Earth is on the verge of a mass extinction event,” said Schwartz. “Today, plants and animals on earth’s surface are becoming extinct at a faster rate than ever before. The corruption of earth’s shared natural resources informs us that humanity is inseparable from the rest the natural world and leads us the confront and thus act on the untimely impermanence of all existence.”

At the start of the 20th century, 500,000 rhinos roamed the earth. Today, only 29,500 rhinos survive in the wild. Learn more about the rhino crisis and how you can help here.

“It’s all about having this vulnerability and turning it into power. The crystals stemmed from Superman’s crystalline Fortress of Solitude. It’s about the power of crystals in this kind of cartoony, comic book way—and then in reality, the various properties that people believe they have. They’re like mini shields.” 

Learn more about Debra Baxter’s db/cb jewelry line in our Q&A with the Santa Fe artist, and look below for new works from the ongoing series.
