Create your own sunflower bracelet

Sunflowers are a common crop among Indigenous nations throughout North America. Not only used as a food source; the sunflower design is used to create beautiful beadwork. Beadwork is a form of decoration and adornment that honors and shows respect for individuals, natural resources, and objects. Today, it continues to be a valuable form of Native expression and artistic skill. Create your own sunflower chain bracelet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs3PA6CRQM4
