This ornament is made with three colors of satin fabric Champaign, Fandango pink, and Gold. 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.
Faith Whitedress 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.
