What are we about?

Here goes. I decided to start this blog because I'll admit it I wanted a place to post my families jewelry. My sisters and I have been beading for years and we have been making jewelry for friends and family since then. Just recently I started thinking that we really should start sharing our ideas and talent with others.

We are members of the Caddo Tribe of Oklahoma and like to bead. We really try to make our things following traditions passed down to us from family, but we also like to make original peices.

If your like me I go to pow wows and Indian art markets and table after table is all of the same. Now I don't want anyone to think that I am bashing tradition. Tradition and knowing where you come from is an important part of Indian life. I'm just saying that it would be nice to see something new that's beginnings have a flare of the traditional. That's what I try to do with my jewelry. Whether it works or not is up to you.

I will try to post pictures and the process of my stuff as I go along. Hope you all enjoy!
