My name is Marlene (Hilsinger) Jones, and I have been doing Native American Heritage seedbead jewelry since 1992. Sunflower is my Native American name, given to me by a Hopi friend, Dan, in Flagstaff, Arizona - where I learned to do beadwork.
I am of Native American descent, but I was not raised in that culture. So I am very proud to have been given the name Sunflower, and grateful that I was taught to do beadwork. Beading can quickly become an addiction of sorts, but it is also a great way to relax and have quiet time, as well as be creative.
While beadwork is considered a craft or a hobby, some amazing artwork comes from using beads as as paint and paintbrush and needle and thread as canvas.
