Sandra McComber (Kanien’kehá:ka) from Kahnawake, has created and sold beaded works for most of her adult life. She is one of a small group of craftspeople who can support themselves financially by their beading work. Her style has developed in response to the demand of her clients. This year she is creating headdresses or "crowns" like the one illustrated here, as well as matching arm bands designed to be worn at important events.
