Description

How I love to make medicine bags that represent the state I was born and bred into, New Mexico...

What a magical place this is! All our indigenous peoples have known this for thousands of years... That is why New Mexico is home to a huge population of Native Americans who have been here since time began. Of course, it represents the bringer of life, the sun, and is our state symbol. Also, showing within its center, is the yucca plant, our state flower. The particular design of the sun rays is a creation of an unknown artist or I would gladly give them credit here. Notice the letters "N" and "M" are at the base of the four directions!

Someone once asked me why I never chose to settle in a place that was rich with green trees, grass, oceans, black soil and lots of rain. As I smiled, I drifted off into my vision of this land while I spoke and answered;

"Here, magic is in the air and I feel the heat where the sun bakes the soil I walk on... In the wind, I smell the chaparral and sage... I hear it carrying the sound of the rattlesnake and the coyote... I prick my fingers on the spines of cactus... I see only the darkness and distant stars as the silent night falls... I feel the majesty of being totally alone to experience all these things and more... Everyday..."

This is also the symbol of the Zia Nation, Native Americans who call New Mexico home... Wear this symbol and join me- seeing, feeling, hearing and smelling this magical place...

This bag is 3 1/2 inches by 5 inches embellished with red glass beads and a 28 inch braided leather lanyard...

FAQs

The section called Gallery CUSTOM from Sold is to help customers wanting a custom-made bag to find similar bag ideas. Select one of these and I will make a CUSTOM bag for you similar to it or of the same subject matter. The bag color is of my choice but I will try to accommodate a special request. These bags cannot be duplicated, obviously, being one-of-a-kind creations. Once a custom-made order is placed there are no exchanges, new selection or return.
Earthwayspirits medicine bags are hand crafted and hand painted, one of a kind. The craftmeanship of the leather pouch is substantial. The beading is secured with polyester threat to prevent breaking. The painting, however, will not withstand misuse of any kind; stretching, scraping or exposing it to any liquids. I use a fabric paint sealant to make the paint and ink more adherant. Under normal wear and tear, earthwayspirits medicine bags should last years. Store in a dry, dark and cool place...
Allow me 8 days to create your medicine bag and then add shipping time. Please inquire through Etsy messaging if you would like to request a specific color leather or beading be used, only if available.
