Robyn Delaronde (Kanien’kehá:ka) is a self-taught artist from Kahnawake. A full-time teacher, she works at beading in her spare time. She prefers the traditional Iroquois style of beading, developing relief floral motifs on a velvet background. This 1996 pin cushion is inspired by the pin cushions made at the turn of the century for sale to tourists.
