"I choose every day to honor the earth, and I showcase this through my designs. One of my core beliefs is that we are a part of the earth and the earth is a part of us.
When you understand your interconnection with the animals and the land itself, you understand that you serve a role within the ecosystem. My pieces are inspired by the world around us: they seek to bring awareness to the beauty of the natural world and our inherent responsibility to preserve and protect it.
I do not just create jewelry for the sake of creating it – I create pieces that are deeply interconnected with my culture. It is important that I create pieces from stories and teachings that I have the inherent right to." - Vina Brown, Copper Canoe Woman
