I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Guess What?

Kelly Clark

Guess what? For you, the corvid femmes, magic makers, feather collectors, moon watchers, medicine holders and wild women, I made you a bag.


 Corvid Medicine Bag

(tooled leather, distressed hide, teal suede, cobalt lacing, and a whole lotta rivets) 

Now I try not to boast too much, but seriously, this bag is Amazing. It deserves that capitol A. Richly distressed hide, fully lined in the most delicious teal suede, hand-tooled and painted feathers, hundreds of stitches and nearly as many rivets, this bag represents so many hours of love and meditation, so much care for the details and commitment to craftsmanship that will last a life time.  

I've been thinking much on, and deeply in love with the idea of medicine bags lately.  It is in that spirit that I've poured so much time, energy and love into this piece.  I love the idea of infusing goodness into something that will see you through a lifetime of seasons, worn close to the body, across the heart, something that will be a daily staple that was so carefully crafted, so intentionally shaped.  Every last piece of this bag has been worked by hand, from the original template to the drawn, tooled and painted feathers, from the bright lining to the hand-stamped rivets, from the stitched lacing to the swinging fringe.  It rests upon the hip with a sturdy, substantial feel, a native bohemian piece with a little attitude and a lotta magic.  But that's just how I roll.
