Meet the Artist
Meet Rena, Ghost Bead Artist
Rena is 84 years old. She strings this beautiful Ghost Bead Jewelry in the traditional way.
Sometimes Rena uses colored beads. But you can see from our supply that she prefers the more traditional look... leaving the necklace plain juniper beads.
Our Diné use these beads in the "Enemy Way" Ceremony.
Traditionally, our Diné say juniper beads provide protection against evil.
Also Called "Ghost Beads" or "Juniper Berry" or "Cedar Beads... these jewelry pieces are a staple of Our Navajo People.
We are always looking for more beads... but, grab some while you can. We never know when supplies will run out.
“...that large turquoise piece in Roy Huskies pendant Islands is the most beautiful turquoise I've ever seen. and being born and always living in S.W. Oklahoma Native Country I've seen plenty. I've got to take a picture of it. It just grabs me and I love to just look and admire it.”
“Thank you for sharing your teachings and culture. I find Wally's films really great to watch and I love his no nonsense way of explaining. Please can I have a notification when your new Turquoise jewelry is ready for purchase.”
“This afternoon, I had a discussion with my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and why it’s important especially when we do not reside in the four scared mountains. I didn’t know all the other details mentioned... now I can provide more context to my niece and nephew about wearing turquoise and silver when I see them again.”
“…I am delighted to find the necklace that you are offering and to know that it is authentic and that it represents a return to traditional teachings. Thank you so much for helping me to put through my order. Blessings.”
“Wow they are lovely!! Beautiful and everything in between.”
“Just ordered. So excited ”
“...I love turquoise. Something about it intrigues me greatly and makes me feel very peaceful.Thank you for shining Light on Mother Earth.”
