Winterchild Silver Jewelry - Symbolic, meaningful sterling silver jewellery from Canada's North.
 

The Buffalo

Buffalo Jewelry

As a child of the great depression my Father spent many summer days searching the nearby dry lakebed for arrowheads. Many years before native hunters must have hunted buffalo at this exact spot. What an honest hunt this would have been. The hunted buffalo would have provided food, clothing, fuel for fires and shelter for their tribe.

It is one of the unpardonable pieces of our history that the buffalo nearly became extinct. Thankfully, today the buffalo’s numbers are steadily increasing through private and public efforts.

Creative Process

Jewellery designer, Esther Winter draws each original Winterchild symbol by hand. The symbol is then forged into a hardened steel stamp. Next, the stamp is hammered into the sterling silver, copper, pewter or gold to create an imprint. Final touches include curving the piece and polishing.

Handcrafted in the Yukon, Canada.
