I craft unique and expressive beaded earrings and accessories using the finest Japanese-made glass seed beads. My work mainly focuses on stud, stick, and fringe earrings, though I also make hatbands, necklaces, and bracelets. Beading is a creative outlet that allows me to express myself through a functional, aesthetically pleasing finished piece. It is a channel that honors the long-standing tradition of hand-weaving beads.
I was taught to bead by my Mother, who was taught to bead by her Aunts. As an enrolled member of The Osage Nation, I connect with my family, ancestors, and heritage as I weave beads together. For me, bead weaving is meditative and contemplative, requiring focused attention as beads are woven in one-by-one.
I hope you enjoy the intricacies and delicate nature of my work and I hope you find something that speaks to you.
