This ornament is made with three colors of satin fabric. The
three colors are arranged into an eight-point star like the shape on a Lakota
star quilt. The satin is stitched to a soft leather band around the sides. The
strap is made of soft leather with two brass beads at the base.
This beautiful ornament is designed by Faith Whitedress - Handcrafted at Cheyenne Creek. She was born and raised on the Pine Ridge
Reservation and she is a fluent speaker of the Lakota language. Faith first
began her work as an artist when her high school math teacher helped her and
her classmates learn business skills by creating and selling art. After that
class, she was hooked. Art became a passion to her and a way of providing for
herself and her family. Now, as a mother, she is passing knowledge and love of
Lakota art to her children.
