Old Crow, Yukon

Traditional Craft

Originally from Tetlit Zzeh, Northwest Territories, Shirley moved to Old Crow, Yukon 22 years ago and has been home ever since. Shirley is an avid beader and sewed countless projects throughout the years. From keychains to baby belts to beaded vests and many uppers and strips that she can recognize wherever she walks. You can find Shirley either visiting, waiting on an appointment, or in her free time, with something in her hand sewing beads. Her greatest passion s sewing and is never afraid of challenge. She is inspired by colours of beads. Shirley’s favourite subjects are the natural beauty of beading with the many colours of nature and is surrounded by three beautiful grandchildren, her pride and joy!
