Wampum Artist


In 2012 Cherokee Nation announced it was accepting proposals for decorating a bevy of guitars to represent early Cherokee history for its Hard Rock Casino. I was researching Cherokee use of wampum and decided to embellish a guitar with quahog shells and replica wampum beads. My proposal was accepted and my working with wampum relating to Cherokee history began.
