Announcement   I will do special orders!!!!!!! Litonya means darting humming bird in the Miwok language of Nothern California, but I was born on the Flathead Indian reservation in Montana. Although not a Native American myself I have alway been in love with the beautiful yet functional beadwork seen at Pow Wows and Rondezvous. I sew directly on leather (unless I tell you different) with size 11-15 seed beads. I reproduce pieces I have admired in museums and I also create more contempary medicine bags, rondel necklaces, even some moccasins, etc. I even make 3D animals like eagles, humminbirds and parrots and bracelets.

Love my little medicine bag. Good leather-super soft. Arrived quickly and exactly as described. Handmade by the seller. It's the perfect size and exactly what I wanted. I will be checking back soon. Thank you!

Thank you so much for showing an interest in my Indian style bags, necklaces, shadow boxes etc. I love doing this kind of work. I have done many types of fine art over the years and I have found my niche.
As a coustomer of my Etsy store you are intitled to the best service possible. I will ship promptly (1-2 business days). I will package the items so as to have them arrive safely. All my pieces are handmade and so no other person in the world will have exactly the same item. If there ever is a problem with the workmanship I will fix it and pay the shipping my self. I want you to be happy.
Come back often and see my other pieces. I have developed quite a following locally and hope to see my Etsy customers again and again.
I brand my leather items with my Litonya logo (a darting hummingbird). I have to figure out how to label my necklaces. I wil let you know at the time of shipping how that will be accomplished.
I also do custom work and I'll work with you to get you that extra special piece. Check you all of my store first though I might have just what you want already.
