About Cyna Unltd - rocks, dreamcatchers & beyond
I'd have to thank Mark, my sig. other, for his impromptu history lessons on regional folk art and handcrafts. He also hunted for Indian artifacts and kept a massive collection of reference materials on the subject ever handy. The Native American legends peppered throughout the literature brought back fond childhood memories and fanned the embers of a creative fire I had long since run out of time and energy to tend. Dreamcatchers with their peculiar construction captured my attention right away because of my mad attraction to spiderwebs. Enthralling and fascinating, I could spend hours watching as a spider spins her 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.
