Bill Helin is one of the finest and most widely recognized Northwest Coast jewellery makers. His formal training included studies at the Gemology Institute in Santa Monica, California and at the famous Gitanmaax School of Native Art in Hazelton, BC. Helin’s Grandfather, Henry William Helin was Chief of the Gitlan Tribe and his Grandmother, Maud Helin, was Chieftainess of the Gitgeese Tribe. Although Bill Helin works mainly in precious metals, he also draws and paints. In 1994, he created a design which was made into an embroidered patch that was worn by the crewmembers of the space shuttle Columbia. He is also responsible for carving one of the world's largest totem poles, (180' 3" tall), for the Commonwealth Games.
