Custom made for Monarka by Native artist Shannon Smith. Shannon is Navajo (Diné) originally from Yah-ya-hey, NM. She’s 30 years old going to school full time. Pursuing her degree in accounting. I asked Shannon what inspired her beading and she said “Beading has always been a passion of mine and I do it as a side hobby when I am not busy”.

These are hand beaded on finger nail posts one of a kind. 

Our Hummingbird/Huitzilopochtli/Chuparosa earrings -

Many of our cultures give this sacred bird a story. We are told that the hummingbird was created to send good wishes, thoughts between humans and that they have the ability to communicate with our loved ones in the afterlife. They are a symbol of good luck, a messenger, the one who guided Aztecs to the valley of Mexico, the one who guided our native relatives north of the Americas.  They are warriors, they are our ancestors, messengers, and a symbol of healing.
