Norm Brotchie is the son of Ben Brotchie and Nada Price, and he holds Eagle as his family crest. He learned how to engrave from the late Kwakwaka'wakw artist Lloyd Wadhams Sr., who is known for promoting and popularizing Kwakwaka'wakw jewellery design in the mid 1900s. While Norm is perhaps best known for his silver jewellery, he also works with gold and abalone.
