Scrimshawed Ivory



Welcome to Northern Lights Handcrafted Gifts

Thank you for visiting my web site. This site is a work in progress so keep coming back as I'm sure there will be many things to add to it. There are, and will be many things to offer from Ivory carvings and Scrimshaw, handcrafted wooden boxes, plaques and small bowls, to lots of information and pictures about Alaska.

Located in Southeast Alaska on Annette Island in the town of Metlakatla, I feel that I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful area. One of the many benefits of living here is that I get to witness a lot of wildlife in their habitat. Quite often as I go salmon or halibut fishing, I am privileged to see Eagles and Ravens flying overhead and also Killer Whales, Sea Lions and Seals swimming in the cold clear waters. I have also seen many Mink and Otter playing on the rocks of the beaches. Deer, Wolves and Bear along with many different species of small birds can be observed in the thick old growth forests. There are many more wonderous sights and experiences too numerous to mention.
I try to share with others some of the many things that I have seen, in my artwork. I feel that I am offering the best in high quality, handcrafted work so that you can feel the wild spirit of Alaska. All of the soft woods that I use, such as Red and Yellow Cedar, Western Hemlock and Sitka Spruce, were harvested here, from this area....Alaskan grown. The Mammoth Ivory that I use was gathered from different areas in Alaska. It is not imitation or a manmade material but an Ivory from an animal that has been extinct for many thousands of years. So please, enjoy your visit here and come again soon.

If you have any questions or thoughts, suggestions or comments, or just want to say hello, please feel free to e-mail me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you. Please sign my guest book too.....Thank you....
