About

Beading. Being Native and Bunnies!

Waabooz Beading is the culmination of the knowledge of beading I've learned from my great aunt, my aunt and my grandma. Beading is a multigenerational craft that is in my family and in my blood. Beading is an important aspect of my life that allows me to preserve my native culture and heritage.
I'm from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, where beading is very important to all band members. My designs come from my mind and my talent for beading comes from family, so I hope you enjoy what I make to share a part of me with you!

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

I do offer all of my earrings in a gift box upon purchase. Please let me know if this is a gift and I'll make sure to send a gift note.

Why do you use leather and where do you get it from?

Leather is a traditional material that has been used in Native Beadwork for many, many years. To keep with my traditions, I also use leather to back my earrings. The leather I use is scrap leather that is left over from my uncle who is also a beader, or it is leather that I buy from my reservations Trading Post. In my culture, no part of the animal is meant to leave for waste. I always appreciate and give thanks for the leather that I am given.
