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!
