As a lover of beautiful things, I delight in handmade items that are unique and quality made.

I started Newfangled North in 2016 to satisfy my craving for beautiful design and to explore my Alaska Native culture. I love living in Anchorage, Alaska, and find inspiration in the people and nature. I use seed beads to reflect that inspiration in modern beaded jewelry.

Alaska isn’t just about snow and fishing, it is home to a wonderful and diverse community. There is a reverence for traditional ways and an excitement for new ideas. And everything in between. My bead work is a piece of Alaska that embodies that spirit.
