Project Description

BEADWORK

  • Our beadwork collection is the largest on the East coast of the United States.
  • The beadwork ranges in styles from the 1700s to contemporary pieces beaded by today’s best beaders.
  • This includes raised beadwork which was a very popular style that beadworkers would take to Niagara Falls to sell or barter with tourists.
  • Much of our collection comes from donations, purchases, items found in antique stores, or handed down through families.
