Marsha Vicaire is an aspiring beader. She first learned how to bead from her family while growing up in Listuguj. Marsha can vividly recall her sense of pride and accomplishment as a child after making her first daisy from 7 simple beads. Marsha reconnected with beading in 2015 while in graduate school which helped her to become more focused and mindful, and served as a way for her to remain connected to her family and community. This past spring, Marsha began devoting more time to beading and sharing her work with friends and family over social media. Her work blends a traditional approach with contemporary influences. As Marsha continues to learn, she is grateful for reconnecting with her creative path, as well as with a larger community of Indigenous beaders who inspire her to continue practicing our craft of beadwork.
