Had my first commissioned work sell today! I met Ms. Locklear, who owns Eagle Feather Arts in Pembroke, NC and after our conversation she asked to see some of my leather and beadwork. She smiled and asked if I could make a beaded hair barrette for a Native man in town. The one she had in the shop was too feminine, and he needed a smaller one for his long, thin hair. She was impressed with my craftsmanship and I was even more ecstatic that my own art would be worn by a Native American!
