Hello ya'll, no I'm not from the south, but I have lived here so long sometimes I feel like I am southern born. In reality my heart is in the West. I grew up and went to high school in Colorado and still have family living there and in Arizona and Nevada. So I guess you could say I have Western roots. And thus evolved my love of Native American history, art, jewelry and BEADS. As a child I had a fear of bears, mostly from reading my older brothers' sporting and hunting magazines, but as I grew older I felt an affinity to Bear and adopted him as my personal totem. Now I have a collection of Spirit Bear totems and beads. I started beading as a hobby and now am turning to it as a business. I hope you like my work, my bears and my beads. Please feel free to check out my Picture Trail site, lots more of my work there, http://www.picturetrail.com/homePage/spiritbearbeads Some are for sale, some are not, but will be happy to replicate any piece that is not made as a one of a kind. Feel free to email me with any questions, at miaoreo [!at] yahoo.com I will try to answer them promptly. Thanks for visiting my website. Mia
