Juniper Seed and Bead Necklaces by Betty Nez and family
Juniper trees grow throughout the high mesa country of the southwest and their roots go deep on Black Mesa. The Dine' use their needles and bark for wool dyes and medicines and collect the seeds to string with beads of all colors in lovely, lightweight necklaces and bracelets that feel good to wear and are meant for good luck. Currently, all are sold; none in stock.
