Light on Words, but Heavy on Photos

Most of these photos, which feature beautiful Indian beadwork,  were taken at either the Museum of the Plains Indians at  the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming or at the museum at the Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  We struggled with museum lighting and the reflections on the glass showcases, but I hope you'll still enjoy the photos of the exquisite handwork.

Absolutely beautiful. I was especially taken with the baby things-perhaps because of my new little Grand daughter.
