They accept knitted, crocheted or sewn items for stillborns, preemies & the families of both. If you have some extra time & materials, please do consider donating some outfits.

Both these sets will be donated to Heavenly Angels in Need. If you knit or crochet or even just sew, and would like to donate to this organization, they serve not only Preemies, but families of both Preemie & stillborn babies. They also collect knitted, crocheted or sewn outfits for the families of stillborn children who do not know where to find clothing for such tiny babies and don't want to bury their children naked. If you've ever had a stillborn or a preemie who died shortly after birth, you may have had this experience. Do please go to their website and sign up to help.

I learned to do free form peyote just in order to make this piece. It was one of the first peyote pieces I ever did. I was so naive at the time that I had no idea I was not supposed to mix my beads in a peyote piece! So .... the wings, which are supposed to lay flat, instead were all wavy, because my beads were not all exactly the same size/height.
After several, rather creative, comments about myself, I added some soft copper wire behind the wings and deliberately curved them. Then I mounted my new dragon against a piece of soft leather cut to make it resemble a full-size body piece.
I'm quite happy with how the piece looks.
