Yukon Jewelry

My sister-in-law (thanks Dee!) brought me a bag of gorgeous bone and wood beads from the Yukon.  As soon as I saw the arrowhead, I knew immediately what to make.  These very unique pieces and I am still working on one more antler.  I am strongly against the practice of killing animals for adornment.  However, the small pieces that I am using here are from animals that were hunted by First Nations who use up every bit possible.  They are not hunted merely for sport. 

This is from the horn of a water buffalo and is my favourite piece. 

All the beads mostly bone, but a few are wood.
