Daily Item 10 - Back To My Roots

This whole beading adventure I'm on really began with my attempts to recreate some of the Native American patterns I'd seen in books and at the few Pow Wow's I've been able to attend. I didn't even know I was 1/4 Indian until I was 21 years old, but it seems it has always been with me even if I was unaware of it. Some of the first pieces I sold were anklets like this one. I wandered away from my Western patterns over time and I thought it was about time I got back to them for at least one piece. So, here it is.
