Dancing Fox, whose great-great-grandmother was Lakota Sioux,
lives on the banks of the Susquehanna where the Juniata and Susquehanna
rivers meet. Clayton Three-Feathers, her son, lives a short
distance away in historic Mechanicsburg. Each draws inspiration
for their creations from their Lakota heritage and their beautiful
surroundings. The North Camp is located in Northern Pennsylvania
and each spring the land provides an abundance of creek willow which
is cut, shaped, and dried for the making of dreamcatchers. Iron
wood saplings are cut and aged for lances and walking sticks. During
the spring and fall wild turkey hunting seasons, many hunters visit
the camp and bring turkey feathers which are separated and dried
for future use.
in this collection is hand made, hand painted and/or handbeaded,
therefore, there maybe slight variations in shape, color or size.
Shirley Dancing Fox enjoys making jewelry, dreamcatchers,
mandellas and medicine bags. Clayton Three-Feathers' beautiful
loom beading adorns his walking sticks, lances, and pipehawks. He
also creates rattles, possible bags and much more. Each item is
signed or has a signed hang tag describing the purpose of the piece.
Glass, bone, semiprecious stones, antique silver, pewter and brass
beads, genuine leather products and trade cloth are used.
Dancing Fox and Clayton Three-Feathers are proud of their
Native American heritage and express this pride and their love of
all things upon this earth in the beautiful pieces being offered
creations, which start in our heads and our hearts and flow from
our hands are influenced by the seasons, our surroundings and our
inner self. It is our sincere hope that you will enjoy our creations
as much as we have enjoyed creating them......
