Larissa Olsen

Medium: Silver Jewelry

My name is Larissa Olsen. I am an Alutiiq Native. My parents are Olga Rowland and Buddy Pestrikoff.  I have lived on Kodiak Island all my life. I am proud to be part of the rich vibrant culture of the Alutiiq people, and I enjoy incorporating Alutiiq heritage into my jewelry.
 
I create unique, high quality, silver jewelry pieces, enhanced with my own Alaska Native heritage. My jewelry is created using Metal Art Clay, torch fired and enhanced with vibrant gemstone bead work.

Larissa works with ArtClay.  This is a pliable clay made from a mixture of microscopic silver pieces, a flammable binder, and water. From this clay she forms jewelry pieces, which she fires and polishes.  Her finished jewelry is 99.9% silver.
