Hanabel creates exquisite hand-made jewelry that features unique beadwork and semi-precious stones. According to Hanabel, her inspiration comes from her mom and from the time she has spent in Thunder Bay.

Right now Hanabel’s designs are a hobby but Hanabel would like to teach others her design skills and who knows where Hanabel’s creative talents will go from there.

Isabel is a band member of Eabametoong First Nation. Her specialty is original beaded designs.

Isabel has always been involved in creative work whether drawing, writing or sewing to name a few.

Isabel says she became more interested in beading and creative jewelry design as a result of attending ‘sewing nights’ hosted by Ontario Works.

“It brought back memories from my childhood when I used to watch my grandmother sew. My inspiration comes from my surroundings everyday and things I see around me.”

“I think my designs attract people who are trendy and traditional…my people.”

“My hope is to one day have my own business where I can supply my community with arts and crafts and teach my skills to younger people.”
