[Backed with smoked moose hide, 24k gold earring hooks, custom 6 inch tassel]
This design happened as a result of looking at old designs of mine; many of them looked a lot like my logo. And then I found a picture of my mum in her regalia and studied the angles of her beadwork. So I incorporated a bit of her design into a design that mirrored my logo - a tipi surrounded by a circle/sun.
That’s why I’m calling these Itihkatew - something affected by fire. My mum is one of the first people who taught me what it meant to have a good light at home and I am forever changed by her fire - for the better. ❤️
