These are high quality hiker bells, for back woods hikes. We make these here at the Trading Post. Made with custom made swiss sleigh bells. Made in the USA for us. They are on a key ring that is pulled onto a strap of leather. The leather snaps, making it possible for you to add anything else on to the ring or the leather strap. They have a snap hook on them that is heavy and sturdy for hooking on your jeans or backpack. The bell and hook are both solid brass. These are awesome bells with a wonderful tone. These would make a great gift! Also great to hang on your dog!

74. Native American Berner Feather Painting / Smudging Fan

This gorgeous painted feather would be beautiful in a shadow box on the wall or just lying on a table. However it is a smudging fan. It is use when smudging. You burn sage or some other botanical in a abalone shell. The fan is used to direct the smoke where you want it to go. My customers expect me to smudge and offer prayers for the items I make before I ship them.

This is a fancy fan made with hand pained turkey feathers. I have a Cherokee man in Cherokee NC that hand paints them for me. The tall ones in back are painted to look exactly like Mature Golden Eagle features. The short ones with the black tips are hand painted to look like Golden eagle covert feathers. Then I have used several colors of feathers from a parrot. These colors are hard to come by and very expensive. I wrapped the handle with premium white deerskin leather and it has fringe that is hand twisted by Native Americans from out west. The beaded rosette is also hand beaded by registered Natives. I buy these two items from a third party so I don't have the artist name. The center feather is my own Zoie, painted by Artist Toby Martin.

If the winner would like to learn to smudge I will mail them free book called The smudging and Blessing Book by Jane Alexander.I will include some free sage to burn with it.
