A fun “boho style” cuff bracelet made of natural longleaf pine needles (Pinus palustris) stitched with Brazilian waxed Linhasita thread in two colors, turquoise and ivory. Embellished with silver-colored stainless steel beads and blue crazy lace agate beads. Agates are generally thought of as stabilizers that bring calm energies to their wearers. The protective capabilities of agate have been utilized since ancient times, often in the form of amulets and talismans. Only found in Northern Chihuahua, Mexico about 125 miles south of El Paso, Texas, the look of crazy lace agate beads features unpredictable, lace-like patterns. The three large crazy lace agate beads in this bracelet are a lovely blend of gorgeous ocean blue hues and swirling patterns of agate, perhaps reminiscent of a favorite beach vacation!

Pine Needle & Teneriffe Raven Ornament by Nancy McKeown
Pine Needle & Teneriffe Raven Ornament

Click/tap on images for enlarged view and description.

A teneriffe-woven Raven motif on a brass ring is the embedded center of this pine needle ornament. From The Canadian Encyclopedia, “The raven is a fierce and crafty bird which widely figures in native mythology as a mischief maker. Among the Northwest Coast First Nations the Raven is symbolic as a trickster and initiates the first salmon run of the season.” In the Celtic legends of Ireland, the Raven is a symbol of extreme intelligence and profound knowledge. Symbolism throughout the ages and human cultures is probably as complex as this amazing bird is itself. Ornament  is 3.35″/8.3 cm diameter.

Pine Needle & Teneriffe Eagle Ornament by Nancy McKeown
Pine Needle & Teneriffe Eagle Ornament

Click/tap images for enlarged view and description.

Throughout history, from ancient civilizations to our modern day, the symbolism of an eagle has remained nearly the same. With cultures as diverse as that of the Aztecs, Babylon, Egypt, Rome, Vikings, Europoean nations, Native Americans and of course, America itself, the majestic eagle is nearly universally recognized as a symbol of strength, power, courage, and freedom combined with profound wisdom. Whether it is soaring high above the clouds (known to be the highest-flying bird) or precisely diving to capture its prey, the eagle embodies the spirit of determination, resilience, and enlightenment. This pine needle ornament pays humble homage to a mighty bird, and is made from a hand-woven teneriffe eagle motif centered in a brass ring that is covered with waxed Linhasita thread. The center is nested in multiple rows of dyed black pine needles, also stitched with golden Linhasita thread. Ornament dimensions are: 3.125″/8 cm x 3.25″/8.3 cm. A generous-sized loop for hanging the ornament is attached.

Luck o‘ the Irish Pine Needle Ornament by Nancy McKeown
Luck o‘ the Irish Pine Needle Ornament

Click/tap on image for enlarged view and description.

Here’s a bit o‘ Irish luck to ya in the form of a tiny four leaf clover charm, suspended in a brass ring center covered with a double buttonhole stitch and nested in coiled rows of pine needles. Considered a lucky charm, because there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every lucky four-leaf version and therefore, a rare find. Even so, there are more four-leaf clovers found in Ireland than anywhere else! The leaves of the four-leaf clover are said to be symbols for faith, hope, love, and luck. If you‘re the superstitious type, give your four-leaf clover to someone else—it is said that this will double your good luck! This ornament is made of longleaf pine needles dyed black and stitched with waxed Brazilian Linhasita thread in a pleasant Irish green color, and includes a generous loop for hanging. The ornament is 3.75″/9.5 cm x 3.5″/8.9 cm in diameter.
