of the medicine bags available on our site come with beautiful gemstones that
have been tumbled to clean up a stone's surface and reveal its natural beauty,
like the amethyst shown at right. We usually include 4 different stones. Some
of you have written me asking which stones I enclosed in your package. That got
me to thinking that I should put together a page that identifies the most common
gemstones we have. Click here to go to the Medicine
Bag Gemstone page.
Some of the gemstones are

The Mineral Kingdom
When using a medicine bag, it is traditional to carry an item from
each of the 3 Kingdoms and the World of Man. The three Kingdoms are the Plant,
Animal, and Mineral. That's why many people include a favorite gemstone in their
pouch of special items. Read

As an avid outdoor girl,
I'm always aware of protecting my skin from too much sun. One of the places that
gets too much sun is the décolleté. Originally that French word
meant a plunging neckline in a garment but is also used to describe the skin of
our neck and upper chest area which is often exposed when we wear a V-neck or
open neck shirt. The skin of the décolleté is very delicate and
is more easily sun damaged than the skin on arms, for example. It's a good idea
to cover that area when outdoors so a scarf, which can easily be removed when
coming inddors, is the perfect solution.

you know your favorite pin might be able to be worn as a pendant?
the pin is set vertically on the back, it is quite possible that the pin will
hang well as a pendant. Because I've done this with some of my favorite pins,
whenever I list a pin, I mention whether it has a vertical pin on the back or
not. That way you can get double the pleasure from your favorite jewelry.
