These great items can be used to decorate anything, bringing in the energy of feathers and spirit. The top bead slides allowing it to come tight around whatever you tie it around. Ideas are as a hair adornment, tie to a ceremonial pipe, hang in your car, on a wall, on an aritefact you have made etc.
Each one is hand made by Sheryl Kee from the Navajo tribe in the USA.
Feathers - Connection to Spirit
Feathers are used consistently throughout Native American crafts and ceremonial tools. Birds fly inbetween the earth and the sky and as such feathers represent this connection between us as humans and Great Spirit. Of course a feather is not essential to contact God or be in tune with Spirit. It is a tool - a reminder. Feathers are like a link. You can hold them while praying, you can use a feather to brush smudge smoke over you for cleansing the aura and can have them in crafts and jewellery about you to remind you that you are always connected to Spirit.
Note: Feathers in crafts on Holisticshop are usually from birds found on the edge of roads.
Sheryl Kee - Navajo tribe
Sheryl Kee is a member of the Navajo tribe and lives in the USA. We trade directly with this artist making sure she receives a fair price for her work. All items will be good quality but because of the hand made nature of the goods it is possible that crafts such as these may have small differences between them. These small differences (if there are any) should be seen as a testimony to the fact that you are buying authentic Native American crafts.
