NDN Chick ~ ETT Shop of the Week
Leanna Pierre, of NDN Chick on etsy, has been beading her whole life! She’s a member of the Colville Tribe in Cusick, Washington.
“I bead pretty much what ever I can get my hands on. I have made everything from hair barrettes to a beaded whistle. When I need to give my wrist and fingers a break from all the bead weaving and tacking I also make greeting cards. When I make an item it's not just an item to me. A piece of myself goes into it while I am creating it. If I am feeling sad or mad I don't create anything, I don't want those feelings transferred to the new owner. Each item I create is special to me and sometimes it's hard for me to let it go.”
