Stone Woman Works
The feathers were from a yellow napped Amazon parrot named
"Pirate" (he only has one eye). Pirate lives with Lucy
a blue and gold macaw and Teeg, a Congo African Grey. There are
Austrian lead (emerald) crystals in the web and the yellow feathers in the center are
combined with an antique bead from the 1940's from Czechoslovakia.
Glass beads are combined with "Pirates" feathers to create
absolutely beautiful dream catcher. ALL dream catcher's are
custom made for your birth month and color
|| Baby Moccasins. I don't make the moccasins themselves, I buy them
pre-made and I do the beadwork on them. Small pair with this amount
of beadwork $45.00
Deerskin Bag: this pouch is basically what has made me famous
locally. I buy full hides, and without a pattern, I cut out the
components for the bag. I don't measure it, just comes out the way I
want. I think some ancestor guides my hands. The beadwork
is a basic rosette , 10 beads to an inch. Rosettes are beaded first
on what's called Stiff Stuff and then stitched to the bag. The
beadwork on the top and sides are beaded directly to the leather.
The fringe is hand cut, the bag is all hand stitched, no machines other
than my hole punch and scissors are used. These bags cost $30 to $50
on the beadwork involved.
Small Elk Bag: the size of the bag is 5-6 inches long before fringe,
and is made from elk skin. Elk is much thicker than deer, but harder to
find. The rosette is a classic, "basket weave"
design. Again, all hand cut, no patterns. This bag is
On either side of the bag are hair ties (set $15) and are hand beaded rosettes backed with leather for
ties. The bag is deerskin, with dentalia shell, mother of pearl
shell discs and seed bead fringe. The little circles that circle the body
and flap of the bag are also mop shell discs. $40.00
