We have many talented people in our Native American Forum Thread community.  We have fine artists in almost all mediums, beadweavers, pipe makers, pine weavers, crocheters, pyrographers, photographers, print makers, cookie bakers, tea makers, seamstresses, soap makers, lapadarists, silver smiths.  And the list could go on and on.


We would like to honor one of our newest community members.  Not only does she do magic to rocks, she is a beadweaver and a poet.  Welcome Jody!   

Here are two of her poems.

Face each morning with peace love and light
and touch each day with Gods gift bright
then when the sun goes to sleep at night
Dance with the moon and stars til light
Peace, love and bright
See the moon tonight
Kneel and praise
stars, moon and sky
and all will be yours come light


In her profile, Jody says, “Osiyo, I am part Chippewa, Cherokee and Irish and am very proud of my Native American heritage. Although I am a mix of Irish and Indian, I look Native American with blue turquoise colored eyes. One of my favorite things to do is bead weave my handmade cabochons.  Here is one example:

Turtella Agate (Petrified Snails)

She also makes Native American inspired jewelry available in her second Etsy store.  Here is one of her gorgeous pieces.

Red Coral and Turquoise

Jody says, “I believe thoroughly that each of my creations comes from the Creator. The Creator’s energies work through me and through the stones to become a powerful and beautiful piece of art. The positive energies from the stones will enhance the lives of the wearer. I know this to be true because I feel the energy from the stones as I create each piece.
