Beadwork

 

I learned the way of beads from Whope TwoFeathers in 2015.  She received the teaching as a gift from spirit in a vision. 

 

The technique

When I bead, I work with clean hands and heart because what we make carries our energy into the world.  This particular bead stitch contains no knots, and moves in a fluid moonwise, or counterclockwise, direction.  Beading this way involves prayer and intention.  To me, beading is a deeply spiritual and feminine practice.  I bead to weave my prayers together for the world I want for future generations.

 

Sharing the gift

If you would like a class, contact me. May this teaching stay alive in the hands of those who want to remember the old ways and never be sold for commercial gain.
