Native Beader

On Thanksgiving Day, on our way to the Grand Canyon, we stopped at a scenic viewpoint where a few Native Americans had set up stands to sell their handmade wares. Heather had found a necklace as a gift for someone, but she thought it might be too small. This woman graciously took the time to restring the entire piece into something a bit longer. It would have taken me about an hour to do what she did in 5 minutes! It was really fascinating to hear a bit of her story; what a life.
great shot! Would love to see a closeup of her hands too

Great B&W, man, that takes some concentration & she's doing it so easily!

She looks like she has a lot of charm and history to share with the people.

Great capture! I like your composition and the B&W processing. Neat.

It ain't the jewelry business we see on TV. The B&W presentation tells the story. Well done.

@nikkers Thnka you, Nikkers!!! Here's hoping your New Year is the best ever! Sorry I've been so absent for a month or so. Once I finished my first year here, I let other priorities take over my life. I may end up actually leaving 365 in order to focus more on my woefully outdated web and Flickr site. But I'll let ya know!
xxoo

@mikhasus THANK YOU ! ! !
Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I've been rather absent here for a month and in fact may leave all together to focus on my terribly outdated web and Flickr sites. Who knows, maybe I'll get inspired here once again. HAPPY NEW YEAR ! ! !
