My Story As A Haida Artist

A Northwest Coast Artist's Story

My name is Carmen Goertzen and I grew up on my ancestral lands of Haida Gwaii (off the Northwest Coast of British Columbia, Canada) where my ancestors have lived for over 12,000 years.

I am an indigenous Haida artist known for the depth of my engraving, and for my traditional Haida formline designs. I specialise in hand engraved gold and silver Haida jewelry.

I have been engraving Haida silver and gold jewelry for over 30 years.

My hand engraved jewelry balances a contemporary Native American aesthetic with traditional Haida design elements.

My professional art training began with the early influence of my land, people, and culture and I have dedicated myself to learning the traditional art and design techniques of the Haida.

I am passionate about my connection with Haida Gwaii. When I am not carving, I can be found fishing, collecting Haida medicine, and cooking using fresh locally harvested ingredients.

Frequently asked questions

Are Etsy's automatic shipping estimates accurate?

No.

I ship from my ancestral lands on Haida Gwaii, BC, which is very remote. We rely on ferry service for post to leave these islands. Etsy's automatic shipping time estimate does not reflect this.

Please be patient with the shipping times.

If you ordered from outside of Canada it must clear your country's customs before it arrives to you.

I offer complimentary insurance on all packages to ensure they arrive to you safely. I hope you love it!

Can you do rush orders?

Yes, but I can't guarantee shipping times.


If you have a special occasion please order a few weeks in advance to allow for potential delays at customs or with Canada Post.

All my jewelry ships from Haida Gwaii, BC, Canada, which is very remote. Please keep this in mind. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
