Walker Goldsmiths has had a fun commission to work on this Christmas time. Owen was asked to custom hand carve a “Surfing Eagle” on a Money Clip! And, why a Surfing Eagle you may ask?
This money clip was made as a Christmas gift for a passionate California surfer. This fellow is marrying a Tlingit woman whose family is from Yakatat, Alaska. They are from the Raven side of the village and he has to be an Eagle. He has to have a Tlingit identity, so he is now named the “Surfing Eagle”. See the legend of the Lovebirds . Walker Goldsmiths and the fiance’s parents created a Tlingit identity for him with this Custom Hand Carved Money Clip. Stay tuned for further developments on this story. Native traditions and customs are always interesting!
