WHALE, SUN, & FISH TIE TAC PIN
Sterling silver tie tac by George Estrella
Silversmith George Estrella says, "Always intrigued by the relationship between man and nature, I found in the northern landscape and Alaskan cultures a web of life at once mysterious and outrageous, primitive and modern, and wholly compelling.
With sculpture as a foundational influence on my work with silver and gold, I have drawn most heavily on images of the sea and indigenous life forms for design ideas.
Since 1987, I have divided my time between Alaska and the Northwest where the influences of urban architecture and urban life are emerging in the new pieces."
