    Mathew Nuqingak Ulu Earrings

    Master silversmith Mathew Nuqingak teaches jewelry making at the Arctic College in Nunavut. Originally from Broughton Island, Nuqingak now lives in Iqaluit, capital of Nunavut. In addition to teaching at the college, he runs a studio that is open to artists and jewelers in his adopted town. The studio is a gathering place where people work and exchange creative ideas and inspiration.

    These sterling silver earrings are in the shape of an ulu, an all-purpose knife/scraper used throughout the Arctic regions of the world. It is primarily considered a woman’s tool, though anyone who tackles the tasks of scraping skins or chopping food can make use of it.

    1 3/4″ high from ear clasp to bottom of earring; 7/8″ wide.
