For over twenty years Beverly has sustained the Lakota way of beading  as an integral part of her life.
These pieces were beaded utilizing the traditional Lakota style lazy stitch beading method.  Each stitch is beaded directly onto the traditional brain-tanned hide.  In the early development of beadwork among the Lakota was the distinct use of geometric forms of designs.  Just as a bead worker often named a specific design after some natural object, sometimes the bead worker used a symbol of some mystic idea or tribal scene.
