Announcement   I am proud to be a First Nations Native Indian with the Gitxsan tribe. I try to give a native flair to some of my jewelry. My jewelry is handmade and one of a kind made of gemstone and semi-precious stone. I also love to do Leatherwork making moccasing, gloves, mukluks etc. If I have time, I would like to make more dolls.

About

If not for my mom.

I dedicate all pieces of artwork that I do to my mother.

I am a native Indian who has been making one of kind pieces of jewelry for the last 6 years. I have always been engaged in creating art in various mediums for most of my life. For many years I was very successful in my leatherwork making traditional native wear not only for daily use but worn in the various traditional events such as the feast system of the Gitxsan people. I am a member of the First Nations Gitxsan tribe located on the Northwest Coast of Canada in British Columbia, Canada.

I come from a family of well known native artists, the closest being my mother, Judith P. Morgan. Because of my native background I strive to include a native approach in many of my one of kind pieces of jewelry.

I give credit for my talent to my mom, Judith P. Morgan. She was born and raised in Kitwanga, and still lives there today. You can find out more information about this wonderful, accomplished woman at indianartsandcraft.com. For a real treat, click on this link to see my mom and when her art career started at 17 years of age. http://www.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/exhibits/timemach/galler03/frames/index.htm.
I love you Mom!
