Waksu Bijoux, Why?

For a long time I have a huge interest for American Natives.
I like their lifestyle, their communion with the Earth, with the Nature.
I read a lot of books about customs, faith, life of Natives.
I like their way of dressing, their "elegance" any different from ours.
Over time, I appropriate myself some small elements of their appearance and started to weave earrings (diamonds with fringes).
I was looking for Indian geometric designs, combinations of colors to weave my beads.
Natives used what they found in the area where they lived, they found colors in nature (earth, plants, animals ...) therefore, materials, color combinations changed in different tribes.
At the end, I gave myself the right to woven in my time.
'Waksu' means 'beads' in Sioux language. (My little tribute and my heart stroke)...
For weaving, I mainly use seed beads, I sometimes add Swarovski crystals, glass beads; I also work with wooden, ceramic beads.
I love the gem beads. I like the idea that since the dawn of time men believed in their spiritual power. It's fantastic to think that even today, they kept great energy that we can use to feel better and to to make grow our mind.
I like combineting genres, color and contrast.
I try to use natural materials as much as possible, but I must make use of nylon thread (stronger) for weaving. When the need arises, I use glue.
The metals I use are nickel-free.
I hope you enjoy the small world of my beads passion. I wish you a pleasant visit
