KW - Wood Earring

This highly unique Coast Salish Killer Whale design started off as a 40ft mural painted on the Port Gamble S'klallam Skatepark, which eventually migrated all the way to's Sheckler Sessions. It has gradually been getting smaller and smaller and smaller since then.

This is a two-sided earring featuring a black and natural Orca design on the front and a vibrant red backside. Each pair, which is made of hand painted and laser etched bass wood that is finished off with a protective clear coat, is composed of two mirror-image earrings that will hang facing the same direction when you wear them. 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.
