Owner and designer Shauna Fontaine Anishinaabekwe and proud urban member of Sagkeeng First Nation, Manitoba began her love affair with beads over 20 years ago. Shauna's late mother gifted her with a small amount of seed beads as a youth, which turned to a lifelong passion for this artistic expression.
A self-taught aspiring artist, emerged after the loss of her mother in 2000. Beading became a place of healing and forgiveness. It became the place a daughter could connect with her mother, through the gift of art.
Currently, her 2 youngest teens have been learning, watching, experiementing and engaging in quality time while honouring spirit. They have each found a love for beading and artisic expression.
