Buddy Austin and I teamed up to create a series of Signet rings and a matching tie-dye t-shirt. The wolf, rattlesnake, eagle, and cougar are among the Northwest’s most respected and awed animals. They each represent various habits and virtues. The wolf is a pack animal and represents loyalty. The rattlesnake sheds its skin over and over symbolizing immortality and creativity. The bald eagle overcoming threats of extinction represents resilience and peace. The cougar silently roams vast distances representing stealth protection.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Conservation Northwest, whose mission is to 'Keep the Northwest wild' by protecting, connecting and restoring wildlife and wildlands in Washington and British Columbia.
*Shirts are pre-shrunk, printed with a retro puff ink, and each shirt varies slightly due to the nature of tie-dye. Please note that shirts may vary slightly from the image.
