Simple heart medicine bag

Yesterday I was looking at these beautiful pink hearts I got from my friend Janice at her bead store.  I had just finished a beautiful black buckskin medicine bag and decided to put an opaque pink mauve glass heart in the center of the bag. When I laid it on the bag it was so simple, minimalist and elegant I just had to sew it on.

It feels like good heart medicine that someone out there will cherish.

The medicine bag measures approximately 3 inches tall x 2 inches wide and has a 36 inch neck strap The heart is a opaque pink mauve Czech glass heart bead. I sewed the heart onto this necklace bag. The pink heart adds a simple , minimalist elegance to the leather pouch. The leather is black buckskin.

I can see this bag being used for many purposes.

Welcome to fall

TGIF and welcome to fall! We are feeling awesome fall weather today in Arizona. The very long hot days are coming to a close as the days move by very fast. I woke up this morning to clouds too! Extra special for us.

The rose bush John gave to me last year is still blooming. It has bloomed all summer! It has grown so much and seems to be a very happy camper here.

The morning glories are doing well too! I didn’t think I was going to have any this year because the squirrels ate them all spring but finally after the rains they started popping up in the front garden and the back! So there will be plenty of seeds for next year. 🙂

Of course the art world is our world in so many ways. Everyday we create and create some more. I have to say I really feel grateful for what I do everyday.

In celebrating fall today here is a beaded leather boho turtle bag we created that really brings out fall colors.

What an amazing leather handbag this turned out to be. Our customer wanted really super long fringe. It turned out super cool !

I have decided to learn to play my Native flute. Here is a picture of it.

This is my Native flute with one of our flute bags.

When I sit in our garden I love to bring my flute. I have started to just breath and blow and make some pretty sounds. I haven’t learned songs. I might not. I might just play with my heart and see how that goes. ❤

Another of my goals is learning how to blog more. Have more interesting content. It will be mostly from my garden and my home right here in Arizona. I am a very simple woman with a very simple life. That is something I am grateful I have cultivated in this lifetime.

Special medicine bags

Over the years we have designed and made a lot of different styles , sizes and kinds of medicine bags / amulet bags for our customers. Each individual has a purpose and reason why they need a special bag in their life. Some are for a special stone, crystal or medicines ( like sage, cedar , tobacco or whatever is their favorite).  They can be used to keep a special piece of jewelry in while traveling. There are so many ways to use them. The reason to say “special medicine bags ” is because they are special , just for you or can be given as a gift and cherished forever.

I do many beaded medicine bags. Some with totems of a special kind like wolf paw totems, bear claw totems , turtle totems or sometimes just a nice colorful chevron. Whatever speaks to your heart.

This week I worked on a sweet small white buckskin medicine bag that has a lot of glass crow beads and tin cones on it. I liked it so much I made another one and added it to our shop . It dances and sings. Why? Because of the long fringes with the beads and cones. They jingle a nice song!

This kind of special medicine bag can be worn around the neck or it could be used for home decoration. It would be a special keepsake gift for a special friend.

Take a look.

Leather bead art custom bags in white

It’s been awhile since I blogged anything. I keep thinking about it but some days are so long I am just not feeling it in the afternoons. It’s Saturday morning and I just finished working on our new online store thunderrose.co. It’s a work in progress but I a happy with the new store. It will take some time to get all the products we offer up but of course we do have our Etsy shop (Thunder Rose).

In Arizona we have been having an extreme heat wave that seems to be breaking this week. It has been so hot. We are feeling grateful for a break and praying for rain. It’s been a really tough garden year for sure. The heat, squirrels and gophers have been a huge challenge. So I just said well enough of that. Comes to be a point in time when it’s time to be done. lol…. At least for now.

We have been very busy in the shop making some custom white leather bags this week. Each one has it’s own uniqueness.

When I do a four directions beadwork for our customers I always ask where they would like the direction colors to be. There are many tribes and each person likes their colors to fit with their tribe.

This beautiful white leather bag is a special wedding bag. We feel so honored to have our work be with someone on their special day.

Our fringed leather clutches are so cool. I love the bigger size of this one and the simple beadwork makes it elegant. Love all the fringe.

This white boho bag is so unique. We looked for a while to find this beautiful turquoise center piece and finally found just the right one. This white custom bag turned out really beautiful.

This is what John and I have been up to this week among other things. I really love how all of these have turned out. They are all on their way to their forever homes.

Beads leather and craft supplies

 Today I am going to show you some of our supplies from our store thunderrosesupplies.

John and I started this supply store in 2013. We have been making leather bags and doing beadwork for a long time and we sold some of our leather scraps and lace in our finished product shop on Etsy (thunderrose) . We make so many scraps that it was time to create a new shop so our handmade, hand stitched art bags and beadwork art didn’t get taken over by boxes of leather and hanks of beads. So we proceeded to give it a try and are very happy with our decision.

LEATHER LACE

We have a variety of different colors of leather laces for your craft projects. They are always changing so be sure to bookmark us to see new items.
