She:kon | Hello

Creating raised beadwork is my way of honoring the unique gifts passed down through generations of Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse), and forging a legacy of cultural expression through design. Influenced by the beauty of ceremony and inspired by feminine energy, my creative aesthetic fuses traditional attire with a tough but dignified attitude for a distinctive look. 


Interpreting deeply rooted cultural and spiritual motifs into treasured jewelry, clothing and accessories is a family specialty. Handmade in the heart of Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, my work showcases ancient Haudenosaunee symbols and raised beadwork techniques. 


Our designs are like stories, thoughtfully woven into our dress. In this way my creations hold certain power. They capture our personalities, desires and identity at this particular moment in time. They invite us to explore and honor what it means to be Haudenosaunee and Indigenous today.
