Tamika Petty is a self taught beader who's been creating since I was 8 years old. In 2014 I saw a girl wearing a beaded collar and became determined to learn how to make them. Since then I've found my passion in joining traditional/original beading patterns with modern color, metaphysics and symbolism.
