OOAK loom woven hand made hat band HB019 doneOOAK loom woven hand made hat band HB019

This beaded band is done in no.11 seed beads and measures approx 22 1/2 in. long and 1 in. wide with suede ends and leather strips for closure with a glass bead. The black spirit bird standing on the front is rising up on a turquoise background for a good journey. From front to back, after the spirit bird are blocks of medicine. The yellow and red accented arrows are life force and strength. The stars (sun on one side and moon on the other) send their magic out from the dark on a red road with sun on the top and moon below to provide the medicine. The leather strips are left long for you to finish and trim. When the back is closed it forms another medicine wheel.

wolf cloud CCChasing Cards

In Returned and Reunited, Mark and Ann thought they were dealing with a single card, now they realize they’re up against the whole deck.
Wolf Moon Investigations take on a case where the only help they’ll get is a dead man’s hand, but when one of their own becomes a target the stakes get higher.
Neither one of them are the folding type, so they’ll have to ante up and go all in to shuffle the pack, and it doesn’t take them long to figure out the Wolf only has the Moon and the rest of their pack to count on.
With the odds against them, no one to trust and nowhere to turn, they’ll need to bring the team together and form a hand strong enough to play a deadly game.
