totem birds

I found these on Ebay. The seller said that these are vintage Northwest Coast Native American, hand carved bird totems.......... I know that they are mother of pearl, and they are NWC style. I'm not sure if these are really traditional or just "tourist trade" earrings. I love them just the same. I plan on taking the earring findings off and making my own style of earring from them. I love when I find interesting and unusual things on ebay.

Kumihimo cord and Dancing Trees talisman

Rebbekka's writings and art

some more Burnt Offerings

My Friend from Port Townsend WA, Rebbekka Riverstone recently passed away. I wanted to post some of my treasures that she has created, her art, her writings, her weavings........ She touched many lives including mine, she will be missed but always remembered, and with a smile. I love the symbolism in her Burnt Offerings. You can look at one for hours and keep seeing new things in it. I loved her trees and moon/stars and bees! We both have a Dancing Trees talisman, not too many of them were made. (Madelyn Pitts, artist) I love the cords that she would weave for these pendants, These cords are a real meditative process. I thought good thoughts today about the good times that we had. I know that Rebbekka would want us to celebrate her life...........
