This playful and elegant brooch is hand-carved by British Columbian First Nations artist, Justin Rivard. It is available for $260.00 USD and measures 2 1/4" x 1 1/2" .

In Northwest Coast Native art, the 'Dragonfly' is one of the few insects that appears as a family crest. Dragonfly is a fast, colourful and active creature that is often a messenger figure in West Coast myths. Due to these traits, it is often associated with good luck and transitions. In some depictions, Dragonfly appears with a human-like face and small human hands.

In addition to being trained artistically as a carver, Justin is a trained jeweller. He is dedicated to applying his skills to new and unconventional forms, while using the same media of gold, silver and semi-precious stones. For example, Justin has created carved business card holders, lighter covers, and cufflinks. Justin trained with Kwakwaka'wakw artist Ray Dumont for 16 years and has work in Canadian, American and Scottish galleries.
