Beadwork Jewelry | This beadwork "water is life" necklace is peyote stitched one seed bead at a time to create this wearable piece of art, with accents of turquoise heishi and buffalo bone beads (7 beads) on an antique copper chain adorned with a little heart charm. I love weaving the songs and laws of nature into my jewelry. It seems to encode information that sometimes is lost to us....

Beading is an ancient art that takes a lot of patience, and it's fascinating to see how different communities all over the world are similar aesthetically, and also infused with energetic meanings. Every artistic expression is a way of medicine and we heal ourselves when we love what we create.
Every piece is ethically made in Colorado, and we support local craftsmen, fellow artisans and ethical factories ~ where being socially conscious is an every day opportunity to protect and restore our wild and beautiful Earth Mother.

International orders generally arrive within 2 weeks of shipment, but some may take much longer, up to 8 weeks depending on location and customs.
Please note, UK and other international buyers are responsible for any customs duties or VAT fees which may arise. Customs duties are a tax imposed upon the buyer by their country of residence and are separate from shipping costs. They cannot be predicted, altered or paid by the seller. We are unable to mark packages as a "gift" to bypass customs fees as this is a federal crime in the United States. It is the customer’s responsibility to be aware of their country's tax policies before ordering.
Packages returned due to unpaid customs fees will be issued a refund for the cost of the items only.
Due to limited materials, time constraints, and the complexity of creating handmade art in bulk, we are not currently offering wholesale pricing. Thank you so much for supporting our creative vision 💚
We are really grateful for feedback left on your purchases. The feedback system here on Etsy is a great way of establishing trust and it makes us so happy to know you are enjoying your pieces. 💚
