Black Mesa Weavers for Life and Land
Anna Jean Bahe, Big Mountain
Anna Jean Bahe does fine beadwork, as well as weavings.
Because of limited computer memory, it's been necessary to delete photos of the many weavings she has sold through Black Mesa Weavers for Life and Land. There is a hard copy photo record of all of them, as well as a copy of her full page. Thus, the weavings shown here are primarily the ones received since June 2007.
