About Cyna Unltd - rocks, dreamcatchers & beyond
My sig. other has a "thing." Whatever he's into he's saturated with. Today, it's Graves Mountain rutile. When we first met, it was Indian artifacts. In those days his truck stayed stocked with reference materials (from his massive collection) on Native American history and culture --- ya just never know when or where an opportunity to wander for miles and stare at the ground might present itself. Naturally, I spent a lot of time sitting in that truck and so, I read.
The Native American legends peppered throughout the literature stirred the embers of a creative fire I had long since had time or energy to tend. Dreamcatchers in particular caught my attention because of their connection to a spider's web. I could spend all day watching a spider spin a web.
The parrot feather jewelry as it were, pretty much came up with the idea for itself with the subsequent moltings of our feathered kids, macaws Maggie and Gabby who produce an abundance of stunningly bright turquoise blue, green and gold feathers in all sizes and shapes every year without fail.
Our first website launched in 2003 with dreamcatchers the sole merchandise. In 2004, I added the jewelry section and later the same year, a sampling of Mark's cedar root Wizard Staffs and walking sticks to the Site. The Woodwork drew such interest that by the end of the year it became clear we were going to need a second website just for the woodworks. Find them today at Chigoe Creek Staffs.

The feminine energy of spiders reminds us that we have the ability to weave our lives into strong beautiful works of art.
We may not realize that the sight of a spider's web glistening in the sun, the beads of morning dew catching the light to shine like diamonds on an intricate necklace, may carry a message for us. Their beauty belies their strength because though they are spun from thin strands of silk, they can hold the weight of the dew and capture nourishment in their nets as well. This paints an accurate picture of the traits of the weaver, the spider. Their feminine energy reminds us that we have the ability to weave our lives into strong, useful, and beautiful works of art. Though people may have an instinctive fear response to spiders, we can look beyond the physical instinct to understand the spiritual message they may be bringing us.
