Detalium and abalone beaded tassel earrings handmade by Alutiiq artist Cassey Rowland.
Alutiiq artist Cassey Rowland learned many artistic skills from her mother and grandmother as well as the ladies she met and worked with in Alutiiq communities. Rowland grew in Port Lions, an artsy village where she soaked up the knowledge of those around her. Everyone had something to teach and she listened and learned. In addition to beadwork, quilting, and skin sewing, Rowland harvests and works with wild plants to make healing salves, tinctures, and teas.
