Play (video)

Zia sits in her old green vest perched on the stool, magnifying glass headgear pulled to her eyes, bent over a scattering of beads and stones, thin copper wire, intricate clasps, and unidentifiable odds and ends.

She greets us with her childlike grin, glitter on her left cheek and chin. Her eyes wide and full of excitement, she jumps up for a hug, shuffling blue hand-knit slippers over scraps of paper and fabric that litter the floor from yesterdays creation.

Note: You might also be interested in the story/music that accompanies this video, also called “Play.” In addition, our digital book called “Time to Partner” was originally made by hand with the help of our dear friend Zia.
