Inhabitants of the Northwest: Samborghini and Buddy Austin 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, whos mission is to 'Keep the Northwest wild' by protecting, connecting and restoring wildlife and wildlands in Washington and British Colombia.
Ring: made in Sterling Silver with hand engraved Rattlesnake and collaborative hallmarks.

Rattlesnake: The Northern Pacific Rattlesnake aka Crotalus oreganus is the only venomous snake in the Northwest. We designed the Rattlesnake signet ring with a pointed edge to represent the danger of the Rattlesnake. While dangerous to humans, they are very important predators to have around. They are actually pretty mellow and social according to Dan Beck, a biologist who’s studied them for 30 years. They are kind of like Samborghini, he may look dangerous bc he is so buff, but when you get to know him you realize he’s a very mellow and friendly dude.
According to Beck, “When you take away the superstitions and stories and replace them with knowledge and understanding, you end up with respect rather than fear.”
