On loan from Beadwork Artist Mary McDonald

Prairie Rose Earrings:

Created in honour of the prairies that I call home. These plant kin grow in the most peculiar, sometimes inhospitable places and act as a symbol of resilience to me. 

Night Sky Earrings:

Created in honour of Grandmother Moon, the upholder of female energy. Whenever I make this design, I think of all the strong women I have been blessed to know in this life. 

Bone Bead Set:

Created using cow bone and dyed jade beads.
