An Idea that is given form-Equals the greatest magic of all- ART!

Barb and I got together in 1991, and formed Black Hawk Creations. We have been through a pile of incarnations with the items we create...but right now its primarily Copper and Silver Jewelry, Fine Leather Clothing and Accouterments and bone and Antler carving.

My work is influenced by the beauty of the natural world, and all the life it contains. As you can see by the pic, I'm an avid kayaker , and draw a lot of inspiration from the my trips along the rivers and gulf coast of north central Fl. As well as memories from the forests and woodlands of western New York state where I was raised.

Barb and I try and put a little of ourselves into each piece we make, starting with smudging our work area with sage and sweetgrass to keep it clear of negativity...
to the completion of a project when a prayer of release is offered.....wishing each creation find its new home, and go to where it will create the most joy and happiness.
(its a little like when your kids leave home)

Thanks for stopping by Black Hawk Creations home on the web.
Black Hawk Creations is a partnership between me (Steve Bradbury) and my lovely talented wife Barbera. We have been together in marriage and business for 20+ years here in sunny (sometimes) Florida .
We regularly attend Native American Pow Wow events,and Art/Craft shows as a sales venue for our work. The internet is like a whole new experience for us.

Part of the joy in what we do comes from seeing the happiness of a customer when they find a perfect gift, or new addition to their own collection of special treasures.

We say a release Prayer when we finish a project up,whether its a piece of Leathercraft, or an engraved Jewelry piece. Part of the Prayer consists of asking Spirit to help our Creations to find their owners ,to go where they will bring the most happiness and joy.

We both love our work,and are constantly striving to improve our skills in the mediums we specialize in,plus try new and different techniques and mediums. Its like a giant smorgasboard!!

So Thanks for visiting, stop back often,we will be adding more items on a very regular basis now the ice is broken and we have it at least half way figured out!

Hopefully one of our works will speak to you, and find its way into your heart and home!
