When I first saw the freakishly long, beaded Ghostdancer earrings on a friend of mine, I was shocked to actually be looking at something undoubtedly inspired by Native American art that didn’t actually insult someone’s culture.

To see an artisan reclaiming the tradition of taking hours, days or even weeks to make a single piece of jewelry is inspiring, and somehow wakes up a part of me to remember the importance of putting respect and care into everything we create.
