Sterling Silver and Pearl Salmon Bone EarringsMorgan Asoyuf , Tsimshian
Morgan Asoyuf (Green) was born in 1984, is an accomplished and talented Tsm’syen artist from Prince Rupert BC.
She apprenticed with artists such as Richard Adkins (Haida), her renowned artist and father Henry Green (Tsm'syen). She also gained some formal training at the Vancouver Metal Art School with German Goldsmith Gerold Mueller.
Morgan is a teacher, creator and fishes on the Skeena River. She is driven to pursue the art form as both a purist and a lover of experimental technique.
These beautiful individually designed and handcrafted earrings had a humble start with the artist harvesting the salmon bones while fishing several years ago. These where then casted and resemble the iconic and highly collectable and sought after, blue Russian trade bead. These were part of Morgan’s ‘Royal Portrait’ exhibition pieces that where on display at the Bill Reid Gallery and the release of the Royal Portrait collection in 2019.
