What are you most proud of? My Granddaughter! (silly question!) This project was made from materials that I have had on hand for years. Beads, white buckskin, a wooden spoon. The only thing I bought was a package of # 13 beading needles. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think about it for 10 to 15 years. Look on the web and go to some Pow-wows. Look at some of the newer books on Native American beadwork.. Look for "Gourd stich and/or peyote beadwork" at your local library.
