CROW BEADS are cut from colored tubes of glass or plastic and tumbled and polished to give a smooth rounded, slightly oval finish. They commonly range in size from 6mm to 9mm with a 3mm hole. Crow beads are popular for decorating medicine bags, hair braids and some Native American styles of jewelry.
EAGLE: The eagle is a symbol of power, healing and wisdom. The eagle represents enlightenment reached through inner work, understanding and reclaiming our personal power. Tenacity, clear vision and patience, living in balance with Spirit and Earth. Eagle connects one with Great Spirit, the Great Mystery, opening the soul to greater healing. It tells you that the universe is giving you the opportunity to fly above your life's worldly levels, or above the shadow of past realities, granting yourself permission to be free in order to reach all the joy that your heart desires and Spirit requires.
