Salute to the Sockeye 2010

Every year in October, thousands of spawning salmon swim up from the Pacific Ocean and make their way inland to Adams River where they lay their eggs.  The Adams River Salmon Society organizes a Salute to the Sockeye at Roderick Haig Brown Park attracting more than 100,000 visitors over a three week period.  There is a gift shop set up in a log cabin in the park where many of the local artists sell their work.  I had the pleasure of being juried in for this year which will be most exciting.

Here is a salmon brooch pin and earrings I made as samples to sell along with my other nature themed pieces.
