Custom Made Jewelry
for the ANIMAL in YOU
The following designs were recreated from images in "American Indian Beadwork" by W. Ben Hunt and J. F. "Buck" Burshears. See below for purchase information.
This is just a small example of the true artistry in the beadwork done by Native American Indians. Notice the use of symmetry and repeated geometric shapes. These designs work equally well as chokers, belts, bracelets, or arm bands. They are also good examples of what can be accomplished using the JagWear Designer PaintApplet (free of charge).
