This is my newest creation. I have the idea of making some small, one of a kind wall hangings. Something that will easily fit in a small space on a wall, and is unique and beautiful.
This one is “Beaded sunset.” It has a genuine piece of turquoise in the center, and is hung on a cactus skeleton.

Measures about 14″ x 14″        $300.00  
These small wall hangings are the first in some fun ideas I have. The heart is leather with a one of a kind piece of splattered bronze in the center. I love these bronze splatters from the foundry, they are all so unique, and you never know what you’ll find. Hand beaded around the bronze, and 3 colors of copper wire to hang it from.

This piece had to be a butterfly, what else does that piece of splattered bronze look like? Hand beaded and 3 colors of copper wire to hang it from.

  1. I’m so happy for you both and wish you continued inspiration and success!

    May I offer a name for the Native American sculpture?

    The name, “White Cloud” came to me instantly when I looked at it this morning. He has a larger than life presence with eyes that show strength, insight, wisdom and kindness. White Cloud is the most prominent of my six Native American Spirit guides and perhaps it was he, who whispered his name to me when I looked at the sculpture today.

    I feel such a connection to this piece and am most grateful and proud of the Native American in my bloodline. I thank Al for honoring these wonderful people with his sculptures and you, Mary for the beautiful beaded pieces you’ve created, as well as your excellent content on the website.

    Congratulations once again and may the “Great Spirit” continue blessing you all.

    In love and friendship,
    Susan Shane, Artisan
