Lonny Cloud - Lumbee/Sioux
Used by the Plains Indians people for generations, bone and feathers have played an important part of everyday life, ceremonies and adornment.
Lonny and Michelle Cloud were the first modern artists to combine elements of bones and feathers into bone feather jewelry. They have been designing and making their bone feather art for 20 years. Although there have been imitations of their designs the Clouds' work is distinctive and of the finest quality available.
What's more, Lonny has an affinity for horses and, lucky for us, horses are featured in much of his work.
We are offering a variety of Lonny and Michelle Cloud's work for your enjoyment.
Lonny is a registered Lumbee Nation of North Carolina and America. Michelle is a registered Pine Ridge Sioux (Oglala tribe). Their company is called Thunder Puppy Art.

Bone Jewelry Care
From the artists: Your jewelry has been coated with a UV protectant sealer to help keep it looking new and to protect it from every day wear. Due to the nature of different artist pigments each color can react differently to exposure to the elements and to cleaning methods, but here are a few helpful tips to care for your wearable art piece.
It is best not to store your piece in direct sunlight when not wearing it to avoid fading of the color over time. There are natural oils in the bone that may become more noticeable over time as well. While you should have no trouble wearing them in wet weather, they should not be worn while bathing, swimming or hot-tubing.
If you need to clean your piece please do so with great care. You can use a soft cloth or Q-Tip with little pressure to remove any soil. It is best to avoid using water to clean your piece if possible. Using a Q-Tip with silver cleaner on the Sterling only (not the bone) will remove any silver tarnish. You may also use a polish cloth on the silver but it is important to keep the cloth off the painted bone as well, as the tarnish from the cloth may discolor the painting.
Using some care with your piece should keep your wearable art looking good for many years. If you ever have any problem with your item please contact us for assistance as we want for your experience with our art to always be an enjoyable one! - Lonny and Michelle Cloud and Family
