This hammered silver cuff bracelet by Nuxalk/Nuu-chah-nulth artist, Kelly Robinson, is embossed with two hummingbird heads facing each other.
Hummingbirds are a symbol of intelligence, love and harmony. Valued for their beauty, they bring a joyful message when gifted. Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth artist Kelly Robinson designed this graceful cast bracelet. Exposed to Northwest Coast artwork at an early age, he has always been interested in learning about art—especially the unique design forms of the Nuxalk.
Kelly Robinson learned Nuxalk design and conventions from Nuxalk artist Alvin Mack. He began painting in 1997 and familiarized himself with Northwest Coast aesthetics. While Kelly has made a name for himself with his carving and jewellery, he has started to branch out and apply his designs to other media. In 2019, Kelly was awarded the YVR Art Foundation Mid-Career Artist Scholarship for his contributions to Indigenous art in BC. In 2020, he won the BC Achievement Fulmer Award in First Nations Art. Many of his pieces display traditional Nuxalk design with a modern twist, such as reversing positive and negative space in places.Show More
