I thought of the name “The Bead Master” not because of ego, but because I’m a nerd and it reminds me of the show “The Beast Master.”

My beadwork is done using size 11/0 seed beads. These are done by hand, using techniques passed down from generation to generation. Traditional Seneca beadwork is typically flat, geometrical designs that tell a story. I create a blend of traditional and contemporary pieces. Seneca people have been using Czech glass seed beads since the mid-1500s and have been making similar pieces with other materials like shells, seeds, clay, wood, bone, and quills since the early 1200s.
