These unique hair pins were made in collaboration with Rykelle Kemp of Ahlazua Fine Arts. They were featured on SWAIA’s Centennial Haute Couture Runway this past year, as well as the Vancouver Indigenous Runway this past October. Together Rykelle and I bring you cherished materials and valued techniques from both our cultural histories, creating work that speaks directly to our Indigenous identities.

 

The stitched details were created using vintage and antique deadstock beads (materials no longer produced, and that offer unique textures and shapes), stitched to beautiful smoked moose hide. The sculptural hair tufts utilize hand dyed caribou hair that’s been traded with other Indigenous artists.
