New From The Studio!

Since I've not shared a glimpse of what we've been working on, a good friend has been encouraging me ... okay, prodding me, to do so.
So today's post is all about what's new from our little creative space. Here in our neck of the woods, literally, we're gearing up for a craft show sometime in early December. Many of our little gems then have a very Christmasy feel. Or at least winter. Betty made these delightful earrings, inspired by a decorated Christmas tree. The photo just doesn't get their sparkle across, but trust me, they sparkle and dance as if they really were lit from within.

Chevy made these little guys from hex beads, and I think they're just about the cutest beaded owls ever! They're just about an inch long and light as a feather. Get it? Feather...owl....
Guess you had to be there.






This key fob was inspired by another piece I designed recently. This is the wolf paw print from "Spirit Howls". I remember being a kid and wishing I could afford some little thing. So with this in mind, we try and make beadwork everyone can afford and enjoy. So this piece was designed with kids in mind, of all ages and genders. You didn't think beadwork was just for women, did you?




This is the aforementioned "Spirit Howls", a bookmark I designed. It has a First Nations feel to it because it was inspired by a Native painter, Norman Knott. There are some things I've changed, so the next piece like this will be slightly different. I wanted to blend elements of old and new, so I used a modern finish (aurora borealis) for the background and the tradition of the spirit line. I also wanted to honor the Four Directions by using one color from each quadrant of the Medicine Wheel. Some might say they can see his breath, some may say it's his prayer to the Creator. I hope this piece brings someone else joy as well.

Of course, that's not all we've created, these are only a teaser. If you'd like to see more, you can find it all at Cee Cee Native Crafts website. Just click the link!
