  • I have been working on my jewelry. Got to justify that new studio I built, LOL.

    This is a piece I've almost finished. I'm waiting on the chain to arrive from Rio. I'm too old to make my own silver chain, LOL. I got the idea from a trip to Kykotsmovi I took back in grad school to see the Butterfly Dance. The stones are chrome diopside and Sonora Sunrise.

    The piece is very back to my southwestern training.

    Forgive the backdrop. Nothing says class like dirty studio rags.

    • Census is always spying on the privacy of the common people and there is always the subconscious feeling that census and therefore the state is Gestapo and Stasi.

      In that we have in the last century made very bad historical experiences.

      There is a feeling that the left Ecofascist are gaining much ground which in turn radiclizes the right wing and the middle is loosing trust in the democratic constitutional state.

      I have no desire for a 1933 returning but the politicians of the old parties don't realize that their not understanding of the average people who carry the state is a strong reason that the extremists gain ground.

      census is a pain may be a good way of a short answer.

        The stone I am not sure, but the silver work I like very much.

        I am too much on the blue side of stones.

          • Thank you.


            BA, the lighting is a bit freaky in that picture. The top stone is dark green, but the bottom stone is red and turquoise. Sonora Sunrise is a hideous stone to photograph. It seldom looks the same in pics as in real life.

            I use a lot of turquoise. But, lately, I've been trying to get away from it. I'm trying to work with a color pallet that is more northern plains and with more stones that are from up north. Tried some inlay with bone and horn, but they were too absorptive. They stained from the polishing dust from the adjacent stones. I won't use Catlinite, that's for pipes, or Ammonite, some folks say they have medicine. Most of the native gem grade rocks are transparent and/or hard as heck.

              Don't mind my comment on the stone colour. It's great work.

              • Sorry, didn't mean to sound defensive. I won't have bought the stone myself if it had been the colors it was in the picture, LOL.

                  The silver work I really like. May be buy it and replace the stones though I am really drawn to your other work some time ago due to the what it represents.

                  But it seems not right to replace the stones. You had an intention to do as you did. I think the green stone in the sun will fine looking.

                  • It's already going away. As soon as the chain gets here and I get it attached, it goes in FedEx to travel to its new home. That other piece is long gone too.


                    You might get a kick out of these. Note the mine name.

                      You caught me.

                      Found a bit about the mine on the I-Nat. Nice, but it is not mine.

                              same here , another cold night. Woke up this morning to about 1 1/2" of snow. Luckily as it was snowing it was still 34 degrees so it melted as it hit the ground. Had it been colder , well.....

                              Most melted today and for sure tomorrow. They say it'll be 60 by sunday ! LOL
                              OC that piece is beautiful. Hope everyone is doing "gooder"! LOL
                              I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


                              They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

                              There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

                              • Chuy, I need the powwows.com bottle of adult beverage.


                                I'm supposed to teach torch safety tomorrow. Just before midnight (after I was in my nice toasty bed), I got an email from VP of classes, telling me there is "no one else" signed up for class and I needed to reschedule. The online registration system is showing 4 places left in a 6 person class. But, I never saw the class listing with more the 4 spaces open. There were so many difference between the online system and the course form I submitted that I don't actually know for sure that 6 spaces were put into the computer. And even though I responded to the email 20 mins after it was sent, it's so late that I suspect I won't hear back until after the time I'll have to leave to teach.


                                Well, color me wrong. The VP of classes is a night owl. No torch safety this morning. Doesn't matter much for sleeping in. Someone is mowing their lawn at the crack of dawn.

                                  Hi,
                                  Just wondering if anyone has info on recipes for beef soup and frybread to feed 200-300 people at an outdoor powwow? My step-father passed and we would like to honor him with a feed but have never done this before. I would appreciate suggestions on recipes, ingredients, cooking times, equipment...

                                  If you were forces to live on a small Iceland, big enough to do a powwow dance, alone, what would you bring with you?
                                  There are off course fresh water and enough fruits to survive on your Iceland.
                                  And it's hot enough to not fresh at night.
                                  BUT no electricity, so sorry, you would...
