Loon is rather rare in North West Coast art which seems a bit strange as there are so many loons living here. Perhaps it is because they spend so much time underwater. He appears as a kind of minor walk on character in a few stories, but nothing of a nature to inspire illustration. We felt that since he is a symbol of Canada we should have a loon bracelet in out collection so we came up with this little guy of which we are quite fond! I like wearing different creatures on my wrist and exploring how I feel when I wear them. I have the greatest affinity for the Raven, then the Orca. Many people have remarked that the Loon’s call is lonely or sad, having grown up in the bush I think Loon is actually rejoicing that no one is around to bother him! I think when I’m wearing my Loon bracelet I hear them calling to me more often than when I’m wearing Raven or Bear. This is an experiment in mysticism that I am still exploring!
