On her recent trip to Haida Gwaii, Tansy stopped at the home of friends, who are both artists working out of their home and also have a little shop…click here for their web page

So many interesting tools – for pinching and cutting…

Tansy was amazed that the workshop is actually rather compact in human terms!

Tansy’s favourite photographer bought a beautiful gift for the Quimper Hitty human, and Tansy carried it home from Haida Gwaii

  1. What a gorgeous bracelet, and how wonderful to be able to take a little tour of the silversmith’s beautiful shop. Thank you Tansy and Favorite Photographer for sharing these delightful photos with us!

  2. Gorgeous metal work…and yes, thank you Tansy and fav photogrphr as well as Hitty human for bringing us these fine Haida Gwaii experiences.

    • Tansy is back home and resting up for the next jaunt…we like blogging about her experiences, as it makes us feel almost like we were there too! Chatting with the photographer gets lots of stories bubbling up!

  3. oh what a nice chapter in Tansy’s journey and what a great surprise for the Quimper human!! The Quimper photographer has great taste as well as great photography talents. I enjoyed the website of the artists. Thanks!
