Black & orange beaded earrings by Wendy Weston (Navajo)
"I hold strong feelings about beadwork as an artistic medium. Through my work, one can feel the strength of my thoughts and convictions as I walk through my life. Through my work, one can see the beauty that surrounds me every day, can smell Mother Earth after a gentle summer rain, hear the proud voices of Navajo people, both yesterday and today. Through all these vehicles, what I do is art, expressing my position in my society." Wendy Weston
