Coyote-very furry!

These mocassins are an original bead design. The foot is polished deer and the fur is coyote-which I have never worked with before. It is VERY FUZZY!!
These are slippers I made to exchange with a gentleman I got a bunch of hides and fur from. I paid some cash, with the promise of mocassins as barter for the rest of the cost. This particular pair are for his Aunt. Hope she likes them.

Bloodroot flower mocassins

A woman contacted me from an ad on Kijiji, I was testing the waters..... She came over and we discussed a pair of slippers. She decided to go with a bloodroot flower....which is tricky, as it is white and I usually do my beading on white stroud. So.....I surrounded the flower with the bloodroot leaf-which is kinda cool on it's own! The result...not bad! It took a looooong time though, with the size of the leaf, the upper is almost full bead!
I hope Dana likes them!
