Alaska Sea Otter Earrings AK-39


These handmade earrings are individually handcrafted silver plated and diamond cut on copper in this colorful West Coast sea otter artwork. The Sea Otter lives in ocean waters along the Northwest Coast, and its thick warm pelt formed the basis of the early fur trade along the coast. Sea Otter pelts were highly prized and widely traded, contributing to a dramatic increase in wealth along the coast after European contact.
