Beading art

It’s been a busy week of beading. Beading is an absolute awesome way to center your mind and focus your attention. When beading all I can do is the one thing, well of course I usually put on some background music so I do listen to music. It’s a blessing to be able to do this art. The journey started for me a little more than 30 years ago.

This is the beadwork work in progress I showed you last week. It started with a Thunderbird. I put the beaded Thunderbird on a small leather pouch.

This amulet bag would be perfect for a special stone, crystal , medicine or keepsake. There are as many uses for these kinds of bags.

My work in progress this week is a beaded rainbow turtle. I have finished the turtle and am working on the bag. The bag is also going to have linear beadwork down the sides. Coming soon! ­čÖé Here is a picture of the turtle.

This is the beginning of a work in progress beaded medicine pouch. I just finished this and love the way it turned out. It’s going to look cool on the saddle tan leather bag I make. I will show that finished work later on.

Another beaded favorite that I finished up is this beaded medicine bag that is ready to ship on our website.

Ready to ship gift ideas

Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a beautiful day of giving thanks!┬á During these holidays John and I really try to stay at a steady pace. So everything we make is very well made and there is no OMG stress. In our online stores most everything is made to order. But this year we have some “READY TO SHIP SECTIONS”. We have been making the things we make for over 25 years and have learned there is no way to have every single thing we make sitting there ready to ship out .

This year we have ready to ship leather handbags, beaded handbags , medicine bags wallets, and a few pair of baby moccasins. You can find all of these sections in our ETSY SHOP THUNDER ROSE , in the first three sections after the ON SALE section. Just so you know we are running a sale. When you buy $30. or more you receive 20% off.

We are no longer making promises for things to get to you by Christmas that are made to order. But the ready to ship items go out in one or two days. No problem.

Sometimes we are running a little ahead of schedule but not always. In the end we just want to make sure everyone gets something quality made. So that is what we do.

Here are some things that we have in our ready to ship sections.

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). ┬áThey 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.
