Karen Lynn and Rickey G.'s Profile

About

We are Karen and Rick and we have been married almost 35 years.

Karen is part Blackfoot Indian and she has been creating artistic things since her heart attack in 1996. After that she kept having visions of native american figures.She started making native american dolls dressed in soft deerskin outfits that are painted and designed by her according to what she dreamed about and native american history. At a point in her doll making she sold to the Mille Lacs Indian Trading Post in Onamia, Minnesota. That is where she started and she has done many different projects since then. Basically whatever she decides she wants to do, she will teach herself how to do it, by trial and error, until it is up to her standards.

Karen also creates leather pouches, hair barrettes, collector doll beds, bookmarks, cement garden buddies and stepping stones, wooden home signs,…

Karen also creates leather pouches, hair barrettes, collector doll beds, bookmarks, cement garden buddies and stepping stones, wooden home signs, crocheted hats and just about anything she takes a mind to do. She loves to paint just about anything. She is a very creative, imaginative little girl trapped in a 64 year old body. She loves what she creates and she creates what she loves.

I am a silversmith who grew up next to the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico. I am part Cherokee but not a member of the Cherokee Tribe. In the mid 70's I took classes to learn how to fabricate Native American Jewelry the old school way and how to cut stones by hand. I eventually became the head silversmith at the place I took my classes and I also taught beginning and advanced classes. You will notice the influence of the Navajo Silversmiths of old in my work plus my own creative touch. It is something I love to do very much. My work is usually stamped with "OWL" and I also sign some things Rickey G.

I also can do custom work so just convo me with your needs and we will get right back to you.

Thanks for taking a look at our store and we hope you enjoyed your visit to Karen and Ricks Place on Green Acres.
