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 Beaded Bracelet (Stylized Butterfly Cuff) : jstinson - ArtFire Jewelry

Native American Beaded Bracelet (Stylized Butterfly Cuff) : jstinson - ArtFire Jewelry

This bright and bold loomed cuff bracelet features a sylized butterfly design. The butterflies are bright pearlized pink beads highlighted with black and teal beads. The spacer area is beaded in bright teal and amber seed beads.

The cuff is 2 inches wide and will fit wrists up to 7 inches. The closure is made of handbeaded ball beads and loops.

To Native Americans, the butterfly is a symbol of joy. They remind us not to take life so seriously. They feed on flowers that they help pollinate, thereby further spreading beauty. They represent the element of air, quickly changing and ever moving, so gracefully. Butterflies are messengers of the moment.

They come in a variety of colors. If you like this bracelet but would prefer it in different colors or a different size, please let me know and I will be happy to loom one just for you!

Mvto and Wa-do (Thank you in Creek and Cherokee) for viewing.
