Beading Rosettes takes patience, love and care. Beading is a slow and meditative process. One large Rosette can take up to 25+ hours depending on the amount of pattern work woven into the design.

 

Genevieve began making Medicine and Sacred Art at the age of 15. She met her first mentor, a Medicine Man in a little shop near the Miccosukee Indian Village in South Florida. She watched him create and he introduced her to prayer and ceremony during the creative process. She has deep reverence and respect for her first Teacher and for the Medicine Way.

Genevieve maintains a sincere connection with Great Spirit in her daily practice of rattling and praying. Genevieve brings her practice into her beadwork ceremony. Each piece is one-of-a kind and handcrafted with deep love and devotion to all things beautiful, all things made of Spirit.

In the sweet territory of silence we touch the mystery. It’s the place of reflection and contemplation, and it’s the place where we can connect with deep knowing, to the deep wisdom way.
