Antler was traditionally used by Aboriginal people to adorn themselves and their clothing. In this piece ,the antler becomes an expression of my culture; a reflection of my ancestry, weaved into contemporary jewelry.
This piece is based on the Mi'kmaq cross or Bay d' Nord Cross which is located at the Baie du Nord on Newfoundland and Labradors Southwest Coast. The cross is regarded as a sacred spiritual site, predominately by the Miawpukek Mi'kmaq and secondary by the other Mi'kmaq outside of Miawpukek.
