Leather and Spikes Cuff
This cuff was made by award-winning artist Jamie Okuma (Luiseño/Shoshone Bannock). It features Italian leather and fur with 13/0 cut beads and brass spikes.
Okuma began working with beads as a child creating her own dance regalia for powwows near her home, on the La Jolla Luiseño Reservation. Historical accuracy, exemplary workmanship, and keen attention to detail are the hallmarks of her work. At the age of 22, Okuma became the youngest artist in the history of Santa Fe Indian Market to win Best of Show, which would become the first of her five Best in Show awards: three from SWAIA and two from the Heard Museum Indian Fair and Market. She is now venturing into the exciting world of contemporary fashion. Price of shipping and handling included.
