Beaded Butterfly Barrettes

I wanted to make some barrettes to match her jingle and fancy outfit. I used the colors pink, yellow, blue and green. These are hand-beaded, backed with commercial tanned hide and beaded with a small border.
I love how the colors and design really POP!
Goes perfectly with her Jingle Dress!!

New Moccasins!

I finally got around to not only starting but also FINISHING some new beaded moccasins for my little girl. Since her jingle dress and fancy outfit have similar colors, it'll work for either outfit! The design is a lot different from my usual designs, but I think with the colors and everything it turned out great. These moccasins are fully beaded, and are about a toddler size 9. These are made with brain-tanned buckskin.

Navajo Sash Belt Barrettes

Recently, a friend of mine asked if I could make her newborn baby some barrettes inspired by the Navajo Sash Belt. I've never beaded this design before, so I was excited to try it out...I think they turned out really cute! The Sash Belt is a very important part of Navajo Regalia...I think making them into barrettes is a great way to incorporate it into a little girl's special outfit. These barrettes are loom-beaded with size 13 seed beads, sewn to a leather backing and then beaded with a small border. Very cute for your little Navajo girl! $15/pair
