New and old. Individual and community. Radical and Traditional. Wearing these "visionary" earrings will remind you to view the world from multiple perspectives!
This two-sided earring features a contemporary take on a classic Northwest Coast eye design.
The hand-painted maple wood compliments northwest Native art traditions -- and every earring features a unique wood grain and paint job that can never be duplicated. The natural elements are balanced by a glossy finish and vibrant colors of the the acrylic pupil. The jump ring and hook have a gun metal finish.
This product is hand-painted, machine cut, and assembled in Louie's studio in Seattle, Washington.

Louie Gong (Nooksack), founder of Eighth Generation, is a self-taught artist who was raised by his grandparents in the Nooksack tribal community in northwest Washington. He got his start by painting cultural art on shoes, but realized that creating one-of-a-kind pieces did not provide a sustainable pathway to success, and began applying his artwork to accessibly-priced products. Louie’s unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
