Native copper, or placer copper was used to make the coppers used along the Northwest Pacific Coast. The copper was usually obtained from Alaska and the Nass River. Copper is known as the lucky metal to some and as the healing metal to others - in Kwakwaka'wakw, the copper symbolizes wealth. Each copper has its own name, history and value.

Abalone Shell is said to enhance feelings of peace, compassion and love.
