Hello everyone. Just wanted to let you know that besides a host of other activities, my wife & I make Native American & Contemporary Jewelry. Shauna has been doing this for around 18 years & her pieces have sold all over the globe & won ribbons at several art shows. She was featured a few years ago in 'Cowboys & Indians Magazine' & managed bead stores & art studios on the West Coast. We work from our homes now in Iowa. I do most of the stone work & she does all the beadwork & designing you see above. We both come from mixed Native American families. A portion of all our sales goes to run our charity called 'The Little Spirits Fund' for abused & neglected children on Pine Ridge Reservation, S.D. Just wanted to share some of our history with you & you can also visit our online store at  http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/BeadSpiritDesigns & sign up for our quarterly newsletter at; http://visitor.eliteemail.com/?action=subctrl&bid=IA/1064858    Have a great day everyone! 

Our global weather patterns have changed dramatically. Please make conscious decisions concerning your safety & those around you. Have a great day everyone! (pic is Wizards Hat, Oregon)

We, as a people, must bring balance to those that have been unconscious for too long. There are those who could care less about teaching their children about what they must do to sustain the very part of Creation that gives them life; Earth.  The conscious must help the unconscious see again, as was intended by Creator. Lead by example, teach the 7th generation what they must do to correct the drastic errors that have been committed by greed, in order for humanity to survive an almost certain extinction. This is not about you or me, but about how you can serve, which is our true purpose. Mitakuye Oyasin.
