seed beads, surgical steel earring hooks, and porcupine quills
I use a ladder stitch to begin my earrings and then move onto a peyote stitch to follow afterwards. After that step I sort and cut my porcupine quills into the lengths I would like to use. Then finishing them off with the dangles and weave the thread back. Materials that I incorporate are seed beads in sizes of 10 and 8, nylon thread, surgical steel and porcupine quills. My inspiration comes from being connected to my family and my (late) grandmother through using traditional material such as my porcupine quills.
