My name is Jamie and I am from the Kwakwaka’wakw Nation. I was fortunate to grow up immersed in culture and surrounded by talented artists. My whole life I was drawn to the arts, music, dance, drawing, painting, but I was particularly drawn to working with my hands, whether it was sewing, beading or weaving.

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to make moccasins. However it wasn’t until we moved to Sooke, that I was able to find a teacher and from that day forward I have not stopped.

I make traditional, custom made moccasins for modern day living. My focus is on style, comfort and durability with an emphasis on sustainability. Each pair is cut, beaded, sewn, carved by hand and infused with love making each pair unique.

From my heart to your sole.

Please contact me to discuss beaded orders before filling out the order form, as beaded moccasins are very personal and involve a bit more detail. Pricing will vary depending on design, time and materials. A 50% deposit is required to get started on your order and can be paid by PayPal.


Heavy Moose and Buffalo hide are used in the making of each pair of moccasins. Hides have natural imperfections often caused by scars, and give insight into the life of the animal. I choose to incorporate these scars into the creation of moccasins, rather than cut them out and see them go to waste. Our lives are full of imperfections that lead to growth, learning and strengthening. I will usually have the scars in a place that is not noticeable, but on occasion they will find a way into a visible area. If you strongly wish not to have visible imperfections showing, please let me know.
