Treasures, Treasuries, and Thoughts

I swore I would never do a blog! So much for swearing. I didn't think that I would have much to say or share. I was wrong! I have been so blessed with a wonderful family, loyal friends, sharing colleagues, and the support from so many that I will never run out of topics to write about.

I have opened an on-line store at a place called Etsy (rhymes with Betsy). The items on the left are available for purchase there. These will change from week to week to show you my latest creations. The link to the store is in the upper left corner of this page.

I also have items for sale listed on Art Fire. The link to my Art Fire Studio is

I hope you will visit this blog, my Flickr page ( and my Etsy and/or Art Fire stores often. (

So come along on my Trail of Treasures! It will be a Spirit Journey for me and I invite you to join me on the trip.

Native American Winter Medicine Bracelet: Earth Renewal Moon

This beautiful bracelet was handwoven using Herringbone stitch.

It was designed especially for those born during the winter moons of the Native American Medicine Wheel. If your birthday is between December 22 and January 19, you were born during the Earth Renewal Moon. If your birthday is between January 20 and February 20, you were born during the Rest and Cleansing Moon.

I have taken the traditional, modern and zodiac birthstones and metals for these moons and combined them in this bracelet. These would include garnet, amethyst, ruby, quartz and silver.

The bracelet shown is 7 3/4" long and 3/4" wide. It is beaded with a variety of bead sizes and colors. The clasp is a .925 sterling silver toggle.

If the size is not the proper length for you or you would like it in other Medicine Wheel moon periods, I would be happy to bead one to your specifications. Just let me know your need(s)!Mvto and Wado' (Thank you in Creek and Cherokee) for viewing!

I won't be happy until I get one of your bracelets, jstinson. Now it will have to be when I see you at a craft show again.
