Traditional Métis beadwork adorns jewelry, blankets, medicine bags, moccasins, as well as other ornamental, ceremonial and every day items. Historically, the Métis were known as the flower people for their beautiful, colourful artwork. As an ancestral Métis I created this design to showcase how unique, vibrant and special these designs are. I used pointillism to mimic the beadwork, but nothing can replace the real thing! Métis beadwork is experiencing a resurgence and awe inspiring work of contemporary Métis artisans can easily be found online.
