This is one of the earliest pair of moccasins I made. They are constructed from commercially tanned deerhide. I was told at the time I would not be able to make them in size 13 beads.... That just spurred me on!
These were my second ever dance moccasins.
Contemporary Cheyenne Style Moccasins
I am inspired by traditional design. I like to mix it up with modern colour combinations. These are constructed of smoked brain tanned buskskin and size 13 Charlotte cut seed beads. I have rubbed the buckskin upper with a yellow earth pigment and the laces with a red earth pigment.
Another commission made to match a lady's existing outfit.
