Saige Mukash only started beading a few years ago, but is inspiring bead artists from across North America with the launch of a design challenge.

It’s called “Bead This In Your Style” and is a bi-monthly challenge to get beaders of all levels working a piece based on Mukash’s original designs using whatever materials, colours, techniques, or styles they prefer over the course of a month.

“On Instagram, I saw a lot of ‘draw this in your style’ challenges, and I thought it would be really cool if we could do that with beadwork,” said the 22-year-old Cree artist from Whapmagoostui, Que.

“Seeing other people’s process and how they interpret the piece is super interesting.”
