Native American Story Necklaces

In this design studio we created our very own story necklaces similar to traditional Native American Story necklaces where each bead was carved to represent a creature,  animals or an ancestor. IMG_0947  IMG_0946

Little Artists created each bead with cloud clay on their string so when it dried it would remain in its position.  Later painting on details such as spots, stripes, faces and words.

Little artist dictated representation or reason for each bead on their necklace into a book.  The book covers then each had an original "finger print" designed cover which was made by rolling our paint with a brayer and drawign a design directly into the paint.  Their books were then laid over the top of the paint, revealing their design as they pulled the paper up.
