Cannes-Bound Misty Upham Picks her Native Bling

Actress Misty Upham, Blackfeet, has decisions to make -- she'll be walking the red carpet at Cannes, where her movie Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian) will be premiering in two weeks, and she wants to do it with Native style.

She tweeted on Saturday, "There's no way I'm going to Cannes with Benicio as a Blackfeet without representing to the fullest. Got a lot of history coming with me."

Benicio is Benicio Del Toro, who stars as Jimmy Picard in a film that critics say may be the most anticipated of the whole festival.

Also on Saturday, Upham sent out a few shots of the jewelry (shown above) she's considering for the fest, which starts May 15.

Misty, the Navajo necklace on the left is great, the overlay technique necklace with Hopi motifs is nice, but stay away from the amethyst in the middle, no Native theme there. Just say'n ! Its all good.

The silver plum necklace is what most Blackfeet woman wear not the ring if you have turquoise that would be good for a ring

If you are representing Blackfeet, none of the jewelry is Blackfeet design.
