In addition to her stained glass work, Elizabeth makes fine quality beaded leather pieces. These include jackets, vests, belts, handbags, and other items of clothing. She also makes a variety of traditional Native American regalia, including pipe bags, knife sheaths, etc.
Elizabeth is committed to creating beaded work that is extremely durable as well as beautiful. She uses kevlar thread (the material used in bullet-proof vests) to sew the beads. In addition, every bead has three stiches and a knot holding it together. Pieces made in this way can be expected to last a lifetime with proper care.
