Each creation a one of a kind original crafted from precious and
semi-precious stone beads.
Accented with antique collector tribal beads from around the world!  

To be
Natively Inspired is to be fascinated by all things hand crafted by the
of this planet.  We are a wealth of many cultures and ideas that influence our
ornamentation.  Ethnic/indigenous, whatever you want to call it I am truly

+Artist designed and created pendant pieces.
+Hand made silver beads by the people of Bali.
+Hand crafted silver, amber, copal, turquoise, coral
and shell from the people of Tibet.
+Beautiful glass and silver beads from India.  I love
those little bells.
+I often use the beading techniques from the native
peoples of North America and South Africa.
+There are wonderful hand carved jade beads from       
+Hand painted porcelain beads from the Japanese.
+The Hill Tribe people of Thailand make wonderful
.999 fine silver beads.
+The nomadic tribes of the Middle East create beautiful
pieces of metal, lapis, and coins.

+There are antique beads from Africa 200 years and
older once used for trade.
+Beautiful mille-fiore from Italy.
+From the Eastern Europe there is a bonanza of
