  • Attaching a Slide

    Our bolo tie slides have a Bennett Clasp backing. The back tab flips up to move the slide up or down the cord, then locks down to hold the slide in place.

    Instructions for attaching a slide to a bolo tie cord are given here. If you are not comfortable using pliers, you may prefer to take the slide and bolo tie cord to your local jeweler for attachment.

  • Bear
    Bears were held in great respect by the Coastal Indians because of their humanlike qualities. Bears that had been killed were taken to the chief's house and treated like guests. Prayers and dances were made to the soul of the bear so that harm would not later befall the hunters. The bear motif is often found carved and painted on totem poles and used in many other art works.
  • Barry Herem

    Barry Herem is a Seattle artist who has worked in the Northwest Coast Indian style for many years. He has written about the subject as a reviewer, and as an unofficial ethnographer and archaeologist who has done field work collecting and publishing data about the precontact Tlingit and Haida of Southeast Alaska.

    Barry's work is symbolic, animistic, and organic, and has been shown in nearly every major American city and many foreign ones. Barry's taut and harmonious work owes much to the essential forms of Northwest Coast native art, which he has renewed and extended in what he calls "equal parts of invention and assimilation."

    He has created artworks in wood, steel, bronze, fabric, aluminum plate, glass and serigraphic print form. He has created several large sculptures, including two 30-foot aluminum plate whale sculptures for the Portland, Oregon International Airport and a large acrylic sculpture for the Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) airport. He has created more than 40 limited-edition serigraphs, plus 5" x 7" art cards based on them.
