Our bodies and our rights are not up for grabs. All handmade items crafted from Artisan Czech beads -- most featuring our "Villi" - a 20th century Czech interpretation of the Paleolithic Venus of Willendorf. Twenty percent of the purchase price of every item in this collection is donated to Planned Parenthood. Unlike her predecessor, Villi is not blindfolded or muzzled. She persists.
Each button is individually forged and crafted by artisans in Bohemia . With the exception of a few vintage pieces, all the buttons used in my jewelry are made in one of three cottage manufacturers in Jablonec Nad Nisou using hand-hed tong molds and techniques that predate the use of electricity.
The beautiful bouquet of Czech glass flower possibilities are both molded and table-cut to create individual shaped beads blossoming with color and character. This collection blooms year around with wearable art from a single simple bloom to a field of flowering color.
Boho & Bohemian
All pieces crafted and designed by Judi Mohn Griggs combining media , color and texture for a variety of wearable art.
My hometown is so much more than wings and winter weather. Out-of-town visitors are often astounded by the natural beauty and vibrancy of the community. I started my design business under the name "Buffalo Bead" in tribute to the unexpected beauty of "Beau Fleuve." This collection represents a variety of my favorite techniques -- single-needle bead weaving, wire work, bead embroidery and more. It's eclectic , sometimes unusual, but always in the spirit of Buffalo. Many pieces are influenced by my respect and relationship with the Seneca bead artists who have been so generous with me over the years. I do not copy or borrow from their work -- it is their heritage. Treat yourself to a visit to their site and always buy Native Art only from Native Artists.
