Joe Descoteaux, 1" W X 6" L Humming bird design, 14k Gold and Sterling Silver Bracelet
The Humming bird is crafted out of 14k yellow gold and the remaining bracelet is Sterling silver. In First Nations art and culture, the Hummingbird often symbolizes endless energy and love for life.
A 6" bracelet (plus the gap) is standard for most wrists. If you would like a larger or smaller version, we can accommodate custom orders from this artist (ie. different sizes, designs, quantities) and are happily accepted.
Born in Ontario, Joe moved to British Columbia in the 1980s where he met his wife Cheryl Wadhams. Joe began working in the Northwest Coast style under the guidance of Cheryl and her uncles Don Dawson and Raymond Wadhams. After working in wood for a year, Joe learned jewellery making techniques from Lloyd Wadhams Jr. In 2007, at a potlatch in Alert Bay, Joe was given the name Hilamas, a traditional name from the Dawson family which means 'he fixes things'.
Custom orders for this artist are happily accepted.
