Welcome to this exhibit of my beadwork which I call Native American contemporary beaded jewelry. I was born at Red Lake reservation in Northern Minnesota and started beading when I was fifteen. In the years since I have developed my own technique, color combinations and designs. They were inspired by different cultures, nature and people's requests. Glass seed beads are used in the jewelry shown on this site with some items also using bone beads and gemstone beads.

Bracelets and necklaces and Medicine bags and necklaces are new for the fall of 2011.

Bracelets and a necklace were added for late 2009.

For the last week of October, 2008 we added some new beaded necklaces with gemstone pendants.

The summer before we added the medicine bags with gemstone clasps below.

The pictures below are of Native American contemporary beaded jewelry which was added in the Winter and Spring of 2007.
