cerimonial pipe and bag beadwork etc

Postby hawkthrower » Wed Feb 20, 2013 12:50 am

Here's a long term project I've picked back up and done some work on lately. The stem I just finished and am now working on the bead work. I will attach the feathers, rabbit fir, and other things. There is also a beaded elk skin bag that everything will go in eventually. The red pipestone was hand carved and given to me a very long time ago by a Lakota friend from up north......I want very badly to do it proper justice...

I'll post more as the project moves forward. Seems like I got motivated to complete this finally after many years of dreaming about what it should finally look like......

Thanks for the "pipe loading" song Shunka
I'll have to wait a while ....
I'm still not done with everything,
I figure it's taken nearly 30 years to bring this along as far as it is now....

why rush it!
