Silver Cedar Bough Necklace

  • The cedar tree plays a prominent role in the tradition of Native cultures of the Pacific Northwest, providing the basis for shelter, clothing, art and ceremony. Eighth Generation's delicate cedar bough, cast in silver from a tip hand chosen by Louie in the Seattle area, is intended to be a gentle reminder that all people are connected to the land. Our metal jewelry is cast locally by artisans in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood and assembled in our Seattle studio.

  • 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.
