Beadwork by Sylvia
My beading journey began in August of 2020. I started off with just six skeins in different colors. I posted my first pair of earrings and several friends showed interest in my work, and things sort of took off from there.
Beading has now become my livelihood. It's how I'm able to support myself and my daughter. It's how I ease stress and move through trauma. It's how I express myself creatively. It's how I tune in to my body. It's how I connect with my culture as a detribalized indigenous woman. It's how I build community.
It is an absolute honor to spread love, beauty, joy, and medicine through my creations.
I am forever grateful for this work.

Sylvia's earrings are symbols of beauty and resiliency. A reflection of the artist and the tradition of beading. I worked with Sylvia on two pairs of custom earrings and she was so attentive and made the process fun! The result was better than what I envisioned and great quality! Not to mention the unboxing was delightful.

I LOVE these earrings. They shipped fast, I got it within a few days from the time I placed the order. I loved the personalized note in my package and the pretty little gifts within. Definitely some good energy that was sent in this package. I will definitely be ordering from this place again!!

I have had Sylvia create two custom pieces for me and both have been beyond my expectations! Her use of color is so fantastic--her earrings are like beautiful tropical birds. She is easy to communicate with, always finishes pieces and ships faster than I expected, and is just a pleasure to do business with. I look forward to buying more pieces from her in the future!

I was fortunate to receive one of her first pairs of earrings. I’ve also purchased another one and will be purchasing many more in the future. I wear the earrings constantly and everyday I wear them I get compliments on them. They bring me a sense of overall calmness and strength. As a former beader, Sylvia is inspiring me to want to bead again. I think what impresses me the most is that she just started beading less than a year ago. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.
