Technique: Daisy Chain, Peyote Stitch
Heather poured her heart and soul into this peyote-stitched amulet bag as a way to help her cope with an illness that necessitated a hysterectomy. On one side of the beaded bag is a woman with her arms outstretched to the universe, asking and receiving healing. On the other side are Native American symbols that Heather hoped would serve as a bridge to the divine. Within the bag are mementos of family and friends, constant reminders of the loved ones who helped her through her troubled times.
