To the right is a picture of the piece I made. It is a hairpin. The flower is made entirely of caribou hair (the petals are the natural color of the hair, and the center is dyed). The leather part is moose and then there is some embellishment done with beads.
When first moving to rural Alaska, I scoffed at the high prices of the artwork, but since trying my hand at a few of the disciplines the past years I now look at the prices and think "what a deal".
