Quick Blurb

I have been creating crafts since I was a kid. I perfer using recycled items as much as possible.

Interests

Indian Style crafts (taught to me by various Southwest Indian friends) such as Dream catchers, medicine bags, beaded jewelry. Beach Designs using shells, sharks teeth, beach sand.

Skills and Techniques

Leather & deer skin crafts such as leather purses and bags. I also use fur & turtle shells on some of the bags. All leather work is hand sewn and made in the traditional native american style. I also create several style of dream catcher, healing wands and other native american crafts. I also love beading both native american and modern style jewelry. Now that I live by the beach, I like creating new items using the shells that I find at the beach and at yard sales.
