Miiken Handcrafted was founded by its owner Erin at the age of 15, in an effort to reclaim her Haudenosaunee culture which she felt estranged from at the time. Inspired by textiles, landscapes, art and culture while on the road with her husband in their van, the Ontario-based artist focuses on contemporary handwoven beadwork, using high quality Japanese glass seed beads and 14k gold filled findings.
